Shopian: Two terrorists linked with Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) have been killed in an encounter that broke out in the Kanjiular area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian late Tuesday night. One of the terrorists killed in the operation has been identified as Jan Mohammad Lone, police said. He was involved in the killing of a bank manager in the Kulgam district.
The second terrorist has been identified as Tufail Ganai. Incriminating materials, arms and ammunition including one AK 47 rifle and a pistol was recovered from the site of encounter, police added.
Earlier this month, Vijay Kumar Beniwal, a manager with the Ellaqui Dehati Bank at the Areh Mohanpora branch in the south Kashmir district, was shot dead by a terrorist in broad daylight. Beniwal was a resident of Hanumangarh in Rajasthan.
Beniwal’s was the eighth targetted killing since May 1st, and the third of a non-Muslim government employee. The recent spate of targeted killings of Kashmiri Pandits, Hindu migrants, and government employees triggered another round of exit from the Valley amid demands of transfer to safer places till security situation improves.
