Assam Police in UP over Hizbul militants arrest

Guwahati: A team of Assam Police reached Uttar Pradesh on Saturday after a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist from the northeastern state was arrested in Kanpur earlier this week.

Qamar-uz-Zaman from Hojai district, was arrested by the Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) of the UP Police on Thursday. He has been missing since 2017.

"We have sent a team to Kanpur. They will coordinate with the ATS who are interrogating Zaman. We will try to get more information about the network in Assam," a senior police officer said here.

Meanwhile, another person was arrested in Hojai on Thursday for maintaining close links with Zaman and the banned terror outfit.
