Nisar Shah of Targain village of Budhal tehsil of Rajouri district was arrested soon after his arrival via Nepal illegally from PoK, where he had gone for arms training, a police officer told PTI.

Shah has been arrested in Rajouri and will be produced in court after vacation, the officer said.

Nisar illegally crossed the LoC in 1999 and joined a militant training camp at PoK, he said. The officer added that after some time Nisar left militancy and the arms training camp and remained in Kotli town in PoK.

He then went to Dubai for three years from 2010 to 2013 and after expiry of visa came back to PoK. "Now he prepared a tourist visa for Nepal from where he entered into the country and reached his village illegally," the officer said.

A case under FIR 10/2011 has already been registered against him as he was declared an absconder, the officer said.
