Top cop dismisses IS claims on Kashmir encounter

Fighting leaves seven dead in Held Kashmir

"About 190 militants have been killed in encounters with security forces in Valley this year so far", General Officer Commanding (GoC) of Army's Srinagar-based 15 Corps, Lt Gen J S Sandhu, said while addressing a joint press conference with local police and CRPF officials at army headquarters, here.

Representational image. A search operation resulted in an encounter in Bandipora district when the militants hiding there fired on the search party of the security forces, who retaliated.

It was a joint operation by the Indian Army, CRPF and the Jammu and Kashmir Police. He is the nephew of Mumbai attacks mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and son of Makki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Lashkar's No 2. "We had inducted special forces into the area", he said.

In a major setback to terrorism in Kashmir valley, particularly in North Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Police and security forces on Saturday wiped out a group of six Pakistani cadres of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba in a fierce gunbattle that also claimed life of a Garud Commando of the Indian Air Force at Hajin, in Bandipore district.

On IAF commandos suffering casualties in anti-militancy operations, Sandhu remarked, "The special forces have to get operational experience and for this objective, they are participating in operations against militants".

Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police SP Vaid on Sunday denied that the Islamic State (IS) had a presence in the state.

He said around 200 militants are still active in Kashmir valley. "They had resorted to some atrocities", he said. Eighty of those were locals, rest foreigners, he said, adding the unrest seen earlier in the year had been brought under control.

In another tweet, Vaid said LeT commanders Zargam and Mehmood were also killed in the operation. The DGP said that Kashmir valley needs to be free from violence, terror, gun and drugs.

"Five militants have been killed in the operation", Kalia told AFP.

The GOC said that the forces are working on two lines of operation.

Capital of Kukka Parray's counterinsurgency militia, Ikhwanul Muslimoon, until his death, along with two more Ikhwanis, on September 13, 2003, Hajin has surfaced as LeT's bastion in northern Kashmir in the last three years.

According to Inspector General of CRPF, Zulfikar Hassan, many militants are willing to rejoin mainstream and are looking for a way out of militancy. "Those who are looking for a way to come back, they can discretely contact us on our helplines", said Hassan. It is easy to call yourself "mujahid", but are you a mujahid or a proxy of Pakistan, he asked.

"We have killed about 190 terrorists as on date, in 2017". We want the youth, who have joined militancy, to return.
