Two Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists, Bashir Lashkari and Azad Malik, were gunned down by security forces after they were trapped in a cordon in Brenti village in Anantnag district. Lashkari was involved in the killing of an SHO and five other policemen in Achabal area of south Kashmir on June 16. The terrorists were reported to be using civilians as human shields during the hours-long encounter that began in the morning. However, all of them were rescued before the final assault began on the terrorists.

“The encounter is over,” Director General of Police SP Vaid told PTI.

Two civilians, 44-year-old Tahira and 21-year-old Shadab Ahmad Chopan, were also killed during the operation in Brenti-Batpora village in Dialgam area of the district, police said.

While Tahira died after being caught in crossfire between security forces and terrorists holed up inside a house, Chopan was killed during clashes with security forces near the site of the encounter. He had firearm injuries on his face and was admitted to the SKIMS hospital in Srinagar where he was declared dead. Four other civilians were admitted to hospitals in the area.

          Are these terrorists or Pakistani Hijraas? Why hiding behind women and children? Actually three terrorists and a civilian died. Stone pelters are terrorists too.

            The news is misleading. Actually two freedom fighters were martyered by Indian occupational forces. besides two civilians were used as human shields by the coward indian army as they could not otherwise defeat them. Thousands and lakhs of civilians joined funeral process of those freedom lovers. Each and every Indian Dog will be sent to soon, i mean back to india. Kashmir zindabad...Rascals will start barking now...1...2.........3 Go !

                Army can actually burn the whole lot in a single attempt but they prefer to give slower death with prolonging pain to them so that next generations will learn from it. They are human shields so they get killed by their folks. You see the point- one shot and multiple birds

                  Good job guys , keep it up another 80-90 left and no more coming from across the border. The stone pelters must be tried for treason and sent to car Nicobar and all hurriyat leadership must be in jail. The war in Kashmir is in its closing stages.

                                But then why were you weeping like a baby when you are being roasted. Even your dead g mother is doing the same in hole- she is getting roasted alive and some of the ex-ISISI soldiers who have reached there think she is the promised i and trying to do what they could never do in earth. Poor lot
