REASI — Reasi Police have successfully identified and booked three individuals involved in fabricating a fake militant threat and impersonating a militant commander in the Chassana area of Mahore sub-division.

According to an official statement quoted by a local news agency, a case has been registered at the Police Station Chassana following an investigation into the matter.

The investigation was initiated after a complaint was filed by Jahangir Ahmed, alleging receipt of a militant threat over a domestic issue. However, suspicions arose during the investigation, leading authorities to uncover a conspiracy involving the complainant and two others, aimed at targeting two individuals by orchestrating a false militant threat.
