Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], July 4 (ANI): The Jammu and Kashmir unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has termed as fake media reports, which claimed that one of two most-wanted Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorists, who was overpowered by locals and handed over to the police, was in-charge of the party's IT cell.
The BJP on Sunday said that Talib Hussain who along with his associate Faisal Ahmad Dar was nabbed by locals, was not incharge of the BJP's IT Cell Incharge as was reported in some media and clarified that Ishant Gupta had been holding the post for the last three years.
"This news is fake. He was not the BJP's IT Cell Incharge. Ishant Gupta is BJP IT cell Incharge from last 3 years and before that Jaidev Rajwal was BJP's IT Cell Incharge J&K," said BJP in a tweet.
Earlier on Sunday, villagers nabbed Talib Hussain and Faisal Ahmad Dar - two most wanted Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists from Tukson Dhok village in Reasi district and handed them over to police.
