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.
