Jammu and Kashmir: Two LeT Terrorists Killed in Pulwama Encounter

Jammu and Kashmir: Two LeT Terrorists Killed in Pulwama Encounter

When they received intel about presence of terrorists in Litter, RR, CRPF and SOG launched a joint operation.

As the security personnel closed in on their hide-out, the militants opened fire triggering the gunfight.

Both the terrorists were first asked to surrender but instead they started firing, compelling the troops to retaliate.

Shah, who was wanted in various terror-related cases, was killed along with Naseer, another local boy who had joined militancy in May this year.

The other terrorist has been identified as Nisar Ahmad Mir.

Reports said that the funeral prayers of Wasim Shah were offered at least five times in Heff village to accommodate the rush of people who were marching from different areas of south Kashmir.

"Waseem was one of the notorious militants operating in South Kashmir".




Born in a middle class family of Gul Mohammed Shah, who ran his fruit business, Shah was an active supporter of Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group since his school days and had doubled up as a courier boy for the outfit, police said. "Well done JKP boys and other SF (security forces)", he tweeted.

Shah, a resident of Heff-Shrimal in Shopian, joined militancy in 2014 and was considered as the "chief architect" of last year's unrest in various parts of South Kashmir.

People also took to the streets in Boniyar area of Uri on Saturday after Indian police took custody of an alleged braid-chopper following a braid-cutting incident.

Pro-freedom and pro-Islam slogans were raised as the bodies of both the militants, killed in a gunfight in Litter village earlier today, were marched towards the graveyard. Another person with firearm injury is undergoing treatment in Srinagar hospital.

As the clashes are continued in the district, the authorities have suspended mobile and internet services to prevent people from sharing information.

So far no militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Reports said following the attack police, paramilitary and army rushed to the village to nab the assailants.
