LeT terrorists gunned down in Handwara

According to Kashmir Media Service, the troops killed the youth during a siege and search operation at Magam in Handwara area of the district.

A senior police officer said that a joint team of army, SOG and CRPF launched a cordon-and-search operation at Khar Mohalla in Magam today morning. Based on this information, a joint operation was launched by Army and CRPF police in that area.

On September 21, The Indian Express had reported that Owaid alias Osama was the third member of Lakhvi's family to join the LeT's ranks and be part of its operations in Kashmir. The Indian Army has been carrying out operations for a few days, as they get new sources for the location of the Terrorists hiding in the valley, or trying to move past their stations and creating havoc.

The Director General of Police (DGP) was briefed on the overall security situation in the region and the strategy being adopted to continue the fight against militants and other crimes in a high-level meeting, a spokesman said here.

Deputy Inspector General of police, North Kashmir, Vidhi Kumar Birdhi told DNA that the operation is still on in the area. We believed two to three militants were trapped. Identified as Adil Rashid, he had escaped the encounter in which Burhan Wani's successor Sabzar Bhat and his associate Faizan Ahmed were killed at Saimoh village of Tral.
