J&K: After Increase in Army Crackdown, Pak-backed Terror Outfits Ask Families of Militants to go Underground
New Delhi, November 21: After Indian Army has increased its crackdown in the Jammu and Kashmir, several Pakistan-backed terror outfits, have reportedly, asked the families of their active agents and operatives to go underground in order to avoid detection by the security forces.
The appeals from the head of all terror outfits to the kin of militants comes in the wake of the recent killing of six Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), terrorists including the nephew of Mumbai attack mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi.
The said encounter took place in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district in which an IAF commando was also killed.
Apart from Lakhvi’s nephew, two LeT commanders were also among those who were killed by the security forces, SP Vaid, Director General of Jammu and Kashmir (DGP), said to media.
Prior to that, three militants, including Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar’s nephew and another ‘commander’ of LeT, were gunned down by the security forces in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
After the operation ended, a US-made M4 rifle used by Pakistani Army special forces was recovered following the encounter, which was hailed as a big “breakthrough” for the Indian Army.
An Army soldier was also killed on Monday night in a fierce gunbattle in Aglar area last night and two AK-47 rifles were also recovered.
The militants gunned down by the security forces are identified as Mehmood Bhai, Tallah Rashid, Wasim Ahmed Ganie and Masood Azhar’s nephew.
