Six Terrorists Killed in Kashmir, Including Nephew of Mumbai Attack Plotter

Bandipora: Six Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants including LeT chief Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi's nephew were killed in a gunfight in Hajin's Chandargeer village on Saturday.

The operation was on and further details were awaited, Kalia said.

In October, two IAF Garud commandos were killed in an encounter that also left two terrorists including a local recruit dead. "Weapons and ammunition recovered", DGP SP Vaid tweeted. Total of 6 LeT militants eliminated. An IAF Garud commando was killed and an army soldier was also injured in the encounter, he said.

A senior police officer told DH that it was a group of nine LeT militants led by Mehmood Bhai which had made Hajin their basin for nearly two years. However, the commando succumbed to injuries in the military hospital, the defence spokesman said, adding that the search operation in the area is still going on.
