LeT commander among two militants killed in encounter in Pulwama

Srinagar , Oct 16 ( KINS)Two militants, including Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Umar Mushtaq Khandey, were killed in an encounter with security forces in the Pampore area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Saturday, a senior police officer said.

Khandey was allegedly involved in the killing of two policemen here earlier this year.

”We are committed to hunt down these militants who try to create fear among masses and spread mischief & tumult in the valley. Such elements and their name should be excised from society,” he said.

Another unidentified militant was also killed in the Pampore encounter, a police official said, adding that arms and ammunition were recovered from the spot.

Khandey’s name figured in the list of top 10 militants who the security forces were targeting since the hit list was released by the police in August this year.( KINS)
