Security forces killed six terrorists in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir early on Sunday.
Five killed terrorists have been identified as LeT district commander Mushtaq Mir, Hizb district commander Abbas Ali, Hizb deputy chief in Shopian Waseem Wagay urf Saif Ullah, Omar Majeed Gani and Khalid Farooq urf Talha. The sixth one is believed to be a Pakistani militant.
Security forces launched a cordon and search operation in the area after receiving information about their presence.
The search operation turned into an encounter after the terrorists fired at the forces, who were quick to retaliate. Mobile internet services have reportedly been suspended in Shopian.
This is a second incident in the Valley within a week where six terrorists were eliminated. Three days ago, another set of six terrorists were killed in an encounter at Sekipora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
