Reportedly, the Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir police had claimed to have busted a militant module in Jalandhar in October 2018 by arresting some Kashmiri students, who were allegedly linked to the Al-Qaida offshoot Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH).
The police had also claimed to have recovered two weapons, including an assault rifle, and some explosives from their possession.
