In a massive success against terror in the Vally, the security forces on Monday morning eliminated three top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists, including Mudasir Pandit, in an encounter at Gund Brath in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore.
Throwing light on the encounter, the security forces said that the Jammu and Kashmir Police, the Indian Army and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) had launched a joint operation on Sunday night following information about the presence of the terrorists, including Pandit.
The officials said that Pandit was wanted by the police in many cases. They said that he was also responsible for the killing of two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) councillors and a policeman in March this year in Sopore.
“Top LeT terrorist Mudasir Pandit who was involved in killing of 03 policemen, 02 councillors and 02 civilians recently and other several terror crimes got killed in Sopore encounter,” said Kashmir Inspector General of Police Vijay Kumar in a Tweet.
