Terrorist Zahoor Ahmad Rather who is associated with terror outfit The Resistance Front has been arrested by the Jammu and Kashmir police for the killing of three Bharatiya Janata Party and a policeman in South Kashmir last year.
As per reports, Ahmad alias ‘Sahil’ or ‘Khalid, was nabbed from Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday morning and admitted to the killings.
