The Jammu and Kashmir Police have arrested three people in connection with last month's terrorist attack on Amarnath pilgrims.

Addressing a press conference, the J&K Police said that they have identified three men who helped the terrorists with logistics and have taken them into custody.


The police also reiterated that the attacks were carried out by Lashkar terrorists.


Four Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists carried out the attack on Amarnath pilgrims, Munir Khan, Inspector General of Police, Kashmir said today.

"We never knew how the attack was planned, where it was planned and who provided the logistics for them but once the investigation was started it was revealed that Ismail Kod Harun, a Pakistani militant of Lashkar and along with him two other Pakistani militants and one local Kashmiri militant carried out the actual attack," he said.

At least seven people were killed when a bus carrying Amarnath pilgrims came under fire from terrorists on July 11.
