The encounter between the security forces and Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists had broken out in the Sadiq Khan area of Shopian on 18 July

A top Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist and one more guerrilla were killed in an encounter with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian, an official said on 19 July. Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar said that the Lashkar terrorist has been identified as Ishfaq Dar alias Abu Akram. He was active in the Valley since 2017.

“Two terrorists — including a top commander of proscribed terror outfit LeT, Ishfaq Dar alias Abu Akram — were neutralised. Akram was active here since 2017,” said Kumar. As per Kashmir Zone Police, incriminating materials including arms and ammunition were recovered from the site of the encounter and a search operation is currently underway. “Incriminating materials including arms and ammunition recovered on (sic). Search going on. Further details shall follow,” said police in a tweet.

The encounter between the security forces and terrorists broke out in the Sadiq Khan area of Shopian on 18 July.

This follows the killing of two local terrorists belonging to Lashkar-e-Taiba in an encounter with security forces in Srinagar on 16 July. They were involved in all three incidents that took place in Srinagar in June this year.

Speaking to reporters, Kumar had said, “This year three encounters broke out in Srinagar. We all know that three incidents took place in Srinagar. In one incident, a police inspector was killed. In another incident, a mobile shop owner was attacked and killed. And then there was a grenade attack in which three civilians were killed and one was injured.”

“These two terrorists were involved in all these three incidents. We were tracking them. When this information was confirmed yesterday, the CRPF launched a cordon operation. We appealed to them to surrender but they refused after which an encounter started and both were killed,” the Kashmir IGP had said.

Kumar had said that a total of 78 terrorists have been neutralised in the valley so far this year.

1.यदि कार्यकर्ता की मुसीबत में नेता भाग जाए तो आख़िर कार्यकर्ता भी पार्टी छोड़कर भाग जाएगा। मई की तृणमूल हिंसा भाजपा नेतृत्व चुपचाप दिल्ली से देखती रही। दिल्ली का यह बर्ताव देख धीरे-धीरे सब पार्टी छोड़ने लगे।
2. एंटरटेनमेंट इंडस्ट्री वालों का वैसे भी कोई ईमान होता नहीं है।
