In a major breakthrough, a joint team of the J&K Police, the Army and the paramilitary Sunday killed a top Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) commander in a gunfight in north Kashmir. The killing of the commander is a setback to the militant outfit whose strength has depleted, particularly in north Kashmir.
On Sunday morning, a joint team of the J-K Police and the Army’s 47, 21 and 6 Rashtriya Rifles (RR), after a specific input, cordoned off the Sudal village of Magam in Handwara.
As the joint team was zeroing in on the target, militants holed up in the village opened fire on them. The police and the Army returned the fire.
In the encounter, a militant was killed. The police have identified the killed militant as Abu Ukasha Afghani. They say he was the Divisional Commander of the militant outfit in north Kashmir.
The killing of the commander is a major setback for Lashkar in north Kashmir which was once a stronghold of the Pakistan-based militant outfit.
Police sources say recently there have been inputs about the militant infiltration in Kupwara sector and that a Lashkar group might have infiltrated into the Kashmir valley. They say Ushaka might have been a member of that group.
