Srinagar, March 26 (IANS) A top guerrilla of the terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and another from Jaish-e-Mohammed have been killed in separate gun battles with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir, the army said Thursday.
A defense spokesperson said the Rashtriya Rifles and the police Special Operations Group surrounded a forested area at Dooraswani in Lolab, 110 km from here, in north Kashmir late Wednesday.
“While the security forces were searching the forest, militants hiding there opened fire, resulting in a gunfight at the end of which one militant was killed,” Lt. Col. J.S. Brar told IANS here this morning.
