- Multiple encounters in Kashmir during lockdown
Two Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists were killed by security forces in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district today.
The terrorists’ parents were brought to the site — located in the region’s Wampora area — to give them an opportunity to surrender.
But despite their parents’ appeal, they refused.
Security forces have eliminated a number of terrorists in Kashmir during the lockdown period; one of them was Riyaz Naikoo, the key commander of the Hizbul Mujahideen group.
Naikoo had become the group’s de-facto chief and carried a bounty of Rs 12 lakh on his head.
He was killed in early May.
