Srinagar: In a major breakthrough, Jammu and Kashmir Police Saturday arrested hardline separatist leader Asiya Andrabi along with an accomplice from the outskirts of the city.

A team lead by SSP, Srinagar, Ashiq Bukhari nabbed
Andrabi along with her second in command, Fahmeeda, from
Malpor Zakura Saturday morning.

Andrabi, who has been leading a separatist campaign,
had been evading arrest for long. Several crack teams were
formed to nab her and her arrest is said to be significant in
view of the fact that she has been out of the police net for
long.

Andrabi, who is heading Dukhtaran-e-Millat, a women`s
separatist organisation, has been acting in tandem with
another separatist leader Masarat Alam, who is said to be
behind the stone-pelting campaign in the state. Alam is
evading arrest.
