He said the slain has been identified as Muhammad Shabir Malik, a Pakistani national. “An Ak-47 rifle and seven magazines were recovered from him,” Major General Abhijit said. He said that vaccination certificates and an identity card were recovered from the slain militant. “A document showing the slain in army uniform was also found in the pocket of the slain,” the army officer said.
