The OGW was identified as Aiyaz Ahmad Wani. His brothers Riyaz Ahmad Wani and Niyaz Ahmad Wani, both of whom were militants, were killed in encounters with security forces in 1993 and 2003 respectively.
On specific information that a Hizb OGW was camping in Kishtwar town, police teams raided various places in the district and arrested Aiyaz on Sunday, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Kishtwar, Rajinder Gupta, told PTI.
He was immediately taken to an unknown place for sustained interrogation, the officer said.
He was also working as the Doda district president of the separatist Hurriyat Conference, sources said.
Police are conducting more raids in different parts of the town and have not ruled out more arrests in connection to the case.
