The Special Investigation Team, constituted to investigate the terrorist attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims, on Friday detained PDP MLA Aijaz Ahmad Mir's driver for questioning.
A resident of Pulwama, driver Touseef Ahmad, was deputed as MLA's driver by state police seven months ago.
Apart from the PDP legislator’s driver, two other locals have also been arrested for their alleged involvement in the said terror attack, reports said.
IGP Muneer Kahn said Touseef, who has been found to have links with militants, is being questioned. "He is cooperating with us and spilling the beans," he said.
J&K police constituted a six-member special investigation team (SIT) on Friday to probe the Amarnath attack.
Seven Amarnath pilgrims were killed and 12 injured when terrorists opened fire at a patrol vehicle on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway on Monday night.
