Militant involved in the killing of SHO Arshid Khan killed along with associate: Police

Anantnag, July 30, : Two militants were killed in a gunfight here in Bijbehara town of South Kashmir’s Anantnag district.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

   A police official said that on a credible input, a cordon and search operation was launched jointly by police and security forces in Katoo Bijbehara area of District Anantnag.

   During the search operation, the hiding militants fired on the search party. The fire was retaliated leading to an encounter.

In the ensuing encounter, two militants were killed and the bodies were retrieved from the site of encounter.

    The police official said that incriminating material including arms and ammunition was recovered from the site of encounter.

    Later in a tweet, Jammu Kashmir Police said that one of the slain militants was Jaish-e-Muhammad Commander Fayaz Ahmed Panzoo and his killing is a big achievement.

    “Big achievement. Another top Commander of Jaish Fayaz Panzoo killed along with his associate. He was involved in attack on CRPF at Anantnag town on June 12, 2019 in which 5 CRPF Personnel were killed and SHO Arshad Khan was seriously injured who later succumbed to injuries,” police tweeted.

  Another militant was identified as Shan Showkat Bhat.
