Srinagar: A Pakistani militant, suspected to be involved in the suicide attack on a CRPF camp here, was on Thursday arrested from Chattabal area in the city.
On a tip off about presence of two militants in Chattabal, the special operation group cordoned off the area and nabbed Abu Talib, a resident of Multan, sources said.

The spot where he was picked up from is a little over a km from Bemina area where the terrorists struck yesterday, leaving five jawans dead and seven others injured.

The Pakistani militant opened fire on the SOG personnel with a pistol but he was overpowered and arrested, the sources said.

The militant told police that he is a resident of Multan in Pakistan and was operating under the alias of Abu Talib, they said.

Sources said the breakthrough was achieved when the intelligence agencies traced a call made by the militant to his handlers in Pakistan soon after the attack yesterday.

Two suspected Pakistani terrorists, disguised as cricketers had on Wednesday stormed a CRPF camp here in a `fidayeen` (suicide) attack, the first major strike in the city in three years.
