Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir police Thursday held two over ground workers (OGW) of banned terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen in Kupwara district.

They were held after police busted an OGW module which was operating in Lolab area of district Kupwara.

In September, another Hizbul Mujahideen OGW, tasked to revive militancy in Jammu and Kashmir's Chinab valley, was arrested from Kishtwar district in the state.

The OGW was identified as Aiyaz Ahmad Wani. His brothers Riyaz Ahmad Wani and Niyaz Ahmad Wani, both of whom were militants, were killed in encounters with security forces in 1993 and 2003 respectively.
