Muzaffarabad: Offices of Pakistan-based militant outfit Harkatul Mujahideen were sealed off in the capital city of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, police and witnesses said today. The move against Harkatul-Mujahideen took place yesterday, according to a witness, Mohammed Javed. Police confirmed the move but gave no further details. The move was part of a crackdown against five militant groups announced on Saturday by President Pervez Musharraf in what appeared to be a move to defuse tensions with India.
