Taking the lid off a conspiracy to engineer communal tension in Jammu and Kashmir, four youth — arrested in connection with a petrol bomb attack on a Valley-bound truck in Udhampur on Saturday — revealed the formation of a “Maya Gang’’ for carrying out potentially disruptive activities in the district.
Significantly, none of those arrested owe allegiance to either the BJP or the RSS and its affiliated organisations, official sources told The Indian Express.
While they are believed to be supporters of two local politicians, having even campaigned for them during the last Assembly polls, sources added that the police were yet to find any evidence to establish a direct connection between the politicians and the accused.
Pointing out that their interrogation was a work in progress, sources said that these youth were indoctrinated by some outsiders who visited the district recently.
