Two militants including JeM commander killed in Kashmir’s Pulwama gunfight

SRINAGAR, DEC 1 ( KINS) : Two militants including an alleged IED expert were killed in a gunfight in Jammu and Kashmir’s southern Pulwama district early Wednesday. The duo, the police said, were associated with proscribed Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) group.

Inspector General of Police  Vijay Kumar said that the fighting broke out soon after the security forces laid siege to Qasbayar village of Pulwama’s Rajpora area to flush out militants dead or alive.

He said that among the slain is JeM commander Yasir Parray who was an IED expert. The other slain militant is believed to be a Pakistani national Furqan. He claimed that both of them were involved in several terror incidents and that their killing is “big success” of the security forces.

J&K police in a tweet on behalf of the IGP said, “Pulwama encounter update: #Militant commander of proscribed outfit JeM Yasir Parray, an IED Expert & foreign militant Furqan #neutralised. Both were involved in several terror #crime cases. A big #success.” ( KINS)
