On Saturday, Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Bashir Lashkari -- who was behind the killing of SHO Feroz Dar last month -- and his accomplice were gunned down in an encounter in south Kashmir.
Monday's offensive in Pulwama came barely 10 hours after civilian protesters helped a group of militants to escape a cordon in Malangpora village in the same district.
