Two terrorists, including LeT’s top commander Umar Mushtaq, were killed in an encounter between security forces and terrorists in the early hours of Saturday in Drangbal under Jammu and Kashmir’s Pampore.
Confirming the killing of terrorist Mushtaq, IGP Vijay Kumar said that the LeT commander was included in the list of top ten terrorists operating in the Kashmir Valley. The police had been looking for him for a long time. The killing of Mushtaq is a big success for the security forces. He had killed two police officers in the Bagat area of Srinagar. After seizing the bodies of the slain terrorists and the weapons recovered from there, the security forces launched a search operation in the area. When it was confirmed that no more terrorists were present in the area, the operation was announced to be called off.
IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar said that Lashkar terrorist Umar Mushtaq Khande had killed two of our associates, Selection Grade Constable Mohammad Yusuf and Constable Suhail Ahmed in Baghat Srinagar. He attacked them while they were having tea. Apart from this, he was also involved in many terrorist activities. So in today’s encounter, the police took revenge on their comrades by killing two terrorists, including him.
The IGP also said that these terrorists, who are creating fear among the public and disturbing the peaceful atmosphere of the Valley, will not be spared at any cost. The name of such anti-national elements should be eradicated from society.
Earlier in the morning, when the encounter started, IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar, while giving information about this on his Twitter handle, wrote that ‘Jammu Kashmir Police has the top ten terrorists on target, including LeT commander Umar Mushtaq Khandey in their circles. I am stuck.’ The police of Kashmir Zone gave information about this terrorist from their official Twitter handle, how dreadful it was.
