Top JeM terrorist Noor Tantray eliminated

Top JeM terrorist Noor Tantray eliminated

"'When a search party went near the suspect's house, hiding militants opened indiscriminate fire and security forces returned the fire", the police spokesperson said.

"One weapon was recovered from the encounter site".

He said the gunfight had erupted after the Army's 50 Rashtriya Rifles, J&K police's counterinsurgency Special Operations Group (SOG) and RPF laid a siege to Samboora on Monday night following inputs about the presence of three militants in area.

However, immediately after the firing stopped, security forces recovered dead body of a top JeM commander. The Polie had then arrested him and recovered almost 19.2 lakhs from his possession.

"We cordoned a cluster of houses at Samboora, resulting in a fierce gun battle leading to the elimination of top JeM commander Noor Mohammed Tantray", a police statement said.

Noora was arrested in Delhi in 2003 and sentenced to life by a Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) court in 2011.

"He was out on parole since 2015 and had since become a lethal Over Ground Worker (OGW) of the JeM", a senior police officer said.

Chhota Noora was granted 21-days parole in 2015, but he jumped the parole and never returned to jail.

He said the gunfire by militants was retaliated to and subsequently, Tantray was killed. Tantray is said to be the chief architect of the attack on the Border Security Force (BSF) camp near Srinagar airport this October.

Meanwhile, four Indian soldiers, Major Prafulla Ambadas Moharkar, Lance Naik Gurmail Singh and Sepoy Pargat Singh were killed in ceasefire violation by Pakistani troops on Saturday.

Police sources earlier told The Indian Express that Tantray, a resident of Tral in Pulwama district, had taken over command of the JeM in South Kashmir and was engineering the outfit's bid to regroup in the Valley. The militant, identified as Noor Muhammad Tantray, was on the wanted list of the Indian Army.

Noor Mohammad Tantray was Hailing from Tral area of south Kashmir, Tantray's death is seen as a blow to the terror group as he was the key man in reviving the JeM in the south and central Kashmir.

Despite the blockades and despite the fact that internet services had been suspended in the area, thousands of people managed to reach the village to participate in funeral prayers of the militant.
