Confirming the developments, Superintendent of Police (SP) Shopian, Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar, said "Touseef was cooperating with the investigators". Touseef Ahmad was nabbed by police for questioning. He has deputed as driver some seven months ago from the security wing of Jammu and Kashmir police.

Trinamool Congress on Friday questioned the government over the recent terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Kashmir and said there was a "failure" on its part when it was "aware" about the security problem.

A police official, on the condition of anonymity, said things are expected to be clearer about the involvement of the driver in the July 10 attack and other militancy-related activities later today.

The arrest is second in the series by the police probing the attack on Amaranth Yatra attack.

Six dead in Bowling Green Interstate 65 crash
Troopers and commercial vehicle officers remained at the scene as of 2:30 a.m. conducting preliminary investigation, Hodges said. Police said it happened at a portion of I-65 where the road merges from three lanes to two and road construction is underway.

The Indian Army on Saturday said the operations against terrorists would continue amid the unfortunate attack on Amarnath yatra pilgrims in which seven people were killed during an attack in Anantnag district in Kashmir.

The attack was carried out by terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and masterminded by Pakistani militant Ismail.

Over 1,86,853 pilgrims have paid obeisance at the cave shrine till last evening.

The 40-day long yatra will conclude on August 7 on "Shravan Purnima" coinciding with the Raksha Bandhan festival.
