Srinagar: One more militant is believed to be trapped in Rawalpora area of South Kashmir’s Shopian district where a top Jaish-e-Muhammad commander, Sajad Afghani, was killed earlier on Monday. However, police officials said, contact with him is yet to be established.
A police official told KNO that the third militant is trapped in Rawalpora cordon but an encounter or contact is yet to be established.
Pertinently, earlier in the day, JeM top commander, Sajad Afghani, was killed in the gunfight in the morning. Three days ago, a Lashkar-e-Toiba militant Jehangeer was killed in the same area.
Government forces continued with the cordon and did not lift the siege as there were inputs about the presence of more militants.
“Today morning, an encounter broke out after contact was established with the militant Sajad Afghani, a top JeM commander,” a police official said. So far two militants including the top JeM commander have been killed in the gunfight. (KNO)
