Reasi (J-K), Nov 12 (ANI): Security personnel have gunned down two Lashkar-e-Taiba militants, including a self-styled commander after a fierce encounter here on Wednesday.
Acting on a tip off, security personnel cordoned off the area around a house in the Kalwa forest area of the district where the militants were hiding.
"We received pinpoint information that they were hiding in someone's house. And one among them was a local militant, who was operating in our area from last one month and also belonged to LeT. So as soon as we got the information we cordoned the nearby area," said Surinder Chaudhary, Deputy Superintendent of Police.
The slain militants were later identified as Rafiq alias Noman, the lashkar's district commander and his accomplice Jabrar.
One AK-47, two magazines, three hand grenades, one satellite phone and a radio set were recovered from the encounter site. (ANI)
