Indian police claims LeT commander killed in Kashmir
[Dawn] An Indian military front man has claimed that two alleged snuffies from Pakistain and three Indian troops were killed on Wednesday in a shootout in Indian-administered Kashmire.
The shootout took place in Kashmire's Nowgam sector, 100 kilometres from the summer capital Srinagar, as the rebels tried to cross into the Indian administered side.
"An infiltration bid was foiled by troops on the Line of Control, killing two myrmidons, but three soldiers were also killed," Colonel A. Vashisht claimed, referring to the de facto border that divides the Himalayan region.
In another encounter late Tuesday, Indian police claimed to have rubbed out a commander of the Pakistain-based myrmidon group Lashkar-e-Taiba
Army of the Pure, an Ahl-e-Hadith terror organization founded by Hafiz Saeed. LeT masquerades behind the Jamaat-ud-Dawa facade within Pakistain and periodically blows things up and kills people in India. Despite the fact that it is
banned, always an interesting concept in Pakistain, the organization remains an blatant tool and perhaps an arm of the ISI...
(LeT) in a shootout.
"A most wanted myrmidon commander affiliated with LeT was killed by a joint search party of the police and army," a police officer said.
