Jammu, Oct 5 (IANS) One of the most wanted top commanders of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) was killed in the hinterland of Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district late Saturday, police said Sunday. Abrar Ahmad alias Abu Ubaid, who was originally with the Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen and later shifted to Lashkar to head its Rajouri district chapter, was killed in a police operation in Targain, a heavily forested and hilly area north of Jammu.

His elimination has been termed as a big success by the state police.
One AK 47 with one magazine, a wireless set, a mobile set (damaged) and one diary were recovered from the possession of slain terrorist.
