Security forces have avenged the killing of social media star Amreen Bhat by Lashkar-e-Toiba militants inside her house in the Chadoora town of Budgam district late Wednesday evening in a successful operation. Four terrorists were killed in two separate confrontations in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama and Srinagar districts on Friday, including two who were involved in the death of a female TV artist.
When the confrontation broke out in the area, Inspector General of Police Kashmir Zone Vijay Kumar stated both of Amreen Bhat’s killers were caught in the crossfire.
The IGP has tweeted that “both killers (LeT terrorists) of late Amreen Bhat, an artist trapped in Awantipora encounter: Further Details shall follow.”
“Both the trapped terrorists had been killed in the encounter,” the Kashmir Zone police stated in a tweet later. “Searches in the vicinity were on.”
Shahid Mushtaq Bhat of Hafroo Chadoora Budgam and Farhan Habib of Hakripora Pulwama, both newly enlisted to the LeT, were identified as the terrorists.
