In a significant development, the security forces in the Union Territory (UT) of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) have successfully eliminated three terrorists which included top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Mudasir Pandit, Hindustan Times.
As per the information shared by J&K Police, the three were neutralised in North Kashmir's Sopore during an encounter that began yesterday (20 June) evening at Tantraypora Brath village following a tip-off.

The said attack had seen the demise of two policemen and two civilians. J&K Police had then said that LeT was responsible for the attack.
