Srinagar: A suspected LeT militant was
arrested when he along with his two accomplices barged into a
bank manager`s house to extort money at gun-point in Baramulla
district, a police spokesman said on Monday.

Based on specific inputs, police last night swooped down
on the house of Punjab National Bank Manager Mohammad Syed
Ontoo in Tarzoo village of Sopore, 55 kms from here, and
arrested Ghulam Nabi Lone when he was demanding Rs one lakh
from him at gun-point.

60 rounds of ammunition, two magazines and a Ak 47 rifle
were recovered from his possession, he said, adding two of his
accomplices - Abdul Samad Naikoo and Ashiq Hussain Mir -
managed to escape.

Lone was a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba militant and the
recovered arms and ammunition was believed to be of the four
CRPF jawans killed by militants at Janwara in Sopore on
December 30, the spokesman said.
