Indian security forces kill top militant, aide in Kashmir gun battle

02 July 2017

Security forces on Saturday gunned down two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants, including commander Bashir Lashkari in Kashmir's Anantnag district on Saturday, police said.

Lashkari and his associate, a Pakistani LeT militant Abu Maaz, were killed after a four-hour-long gunfight in south Kashmir's Anantnag district, that ended in police finally blasting the house where the militants were hiding, in Brenthi Batapora village.

Both 44-year-old Tahira and 21-year-old Chopan were rushed to the hospital, but they could not survive.

Lashkari and Malik were holed up in a house in Dailgham village along with two other militants after forces launched a cordon-and-search operation early in the morning when they received information about their presence, a police official told a news agency.

Indian troops came under fire from militants as soldiers laid a cordon around the southern village of Dialgam following a tip that rebels were hiding there, said senior police officer Muneer Ahmed Khan. He was shifted to a Srinagar hospital where he succumbed to injuries.

The police have also seized a large cache of arms and ammunition from the site where the militants were killed. While laying cordon, militants were found holed up in a house.

Protests erupted during the operation and some resorted to stone pelting. "I commend the valour of the security forces who ensured that all the 17 civilians were safely rescued", he said.

Along with the militants, two civilians have also reportedly died in the crossfire.
