"'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.
