Police said on Sunday that a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist had been slain in the Binner neighbourhood of Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

Irshad Ahmed Bhat, a Pattani terrorist who has been active since May 2022, has been named as the assassin. Additionally, one AK-47, two magazines, and 30 bullets were found by the police.

“Irshad Ahmed Bhat of Pattan Baramulla, active since 5/2022 and connected to the outlawed terrorist group LeT, has been identified as the terrorist who was killed. 30 bullets, 2 magazines, and 1 AK-47 were found “Police in Kashmir Zone tweeted.

The altercation started in the wee hours of Saturday night.

In a combined operation earlier on Saturday, the Jammu and Kashmir Police killed one terrorist in the Baramulla hamlet of Wanigam Bala.

In the course of operation, three members of the security forces suffered just minor wounds, while one attack dog from the Indian Army also perished.

However in response to a particular input, the Police, Army (29RR), and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) (2nd Bn) together conducted a cordon-and-search operation, during which they seized evidence from the scene of the encounter, including an AK-47 rifle, three AK magazines, seven AK rounds, one pouch, and one bag.

During an encounter in Baramulla, the J-K police had also captured two hybrid terrorists from the outlawed terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Combined Naka set up by Sopore police, 32 RR, and 92 CRPF men at approximately 5.30 p.m. in Dangiwacha led to the terrorists’ attempts to leave, according to the police, who claim that they were captured after they tried to do so.

The apprehended individuals identified themselves as Tariq Ah Wanu and Ishfaq Ah Wani, both of whom are natives of the J-Old K’s Rangreth’s Airfield neighbourhood.

The police statement said that terrorists were always looking for a chance to carry out attacks on these security forces and citizens in the Union Territory. The police also found two firearms, two pistol magazines, and 11 live cartridges in their hands.

In Rafiabad, police have also filed a First Information Report in accordance with sections 7 and 25 of the 13 Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and section 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
