Srinagar, April 5 (GNS): Hours after fleeing from the police station in Baramulla, two accused persons, “affiliates” of Lashker-e-Toiba, were re-arrested in the north Kashmir district on Wednesday evening officials said.

A top police officer confirmed to GNS the re-arrest of the duo, Maroof Nazir Soleh of Kanlibagh and Shahid Showkat Bala of Banglowbagh.
