Touseef Ahmad, from the security wing of the Jammu and Kashmir Police, who had been deputed as driver to Wachi MLA Aijaz Mir seven months ago, was picked up by the police on Thursday, sources told DH.

According to J&K police's IG Muneer Kahn, Wani is cooperating and sharing information.

Mr Sharma said that the attack is the result of major security lapse despite clear reports and warnings of possibility of attack on yatris, which reflects the in-ability and in-capability of mufti government to bring the situation under control which is deteriorating day by day, adding. Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh has said that they will probe and fix the responsibility. Two more persons have been arrested along with Tauseef. "We are trying to know what happened exactly on the ground", a senior police officer told this reporter.

The PDP-BJP Govt. has been soft peddling on terror since it assumed office in the state which brought to situation to this level, he said adding, "attempts at damage control immediately after the attack, which amounts to transfer of responsibility is also questionable".
