The incident occurred just one day after two Hizb-ul-Mujahideen terrorists were killed by security forces during an encounter in the Pampore region of Awantipora, Jammu & Kashmir, on Friday morning. According to reports, IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar said that one of the two terrorists was engaged in the July 23 assassination of a peon at a government school in Pastuna. Musaib Mushtaq of Khrew has been identified. Muzamil Ahmad Rather, a resident of Chakoora, Pulwama, was the second terrorist murdered.
According to reports, J&K DGP Dilbag Singh said both terrorists had been killed in an ongoing operation at Khrew, Awantipora. This was a Hizb-ul-Mujahideen killer team that was responsible for civilian deaths in South Kashmir. An AK-47 rifle and a pistol were discovered.
Security forces eliminate terrorists
Defence Public Relations Officer (PRO), Jammu, Lt Col Devender Anand said, “A Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) of the Rashtriya Rifles had suffered bullet injuries in the encounter. He was immediately evacuated to the nearest medical facility, but succumbed to the injuries.”
