Another win for forces: Top LeT terrorist Waseem Shah eliminated

On Saturday early morning a joint team of police, army and paramilitary forces cordoned off the Litter village in South Kashmir's Pulwama after inputs about the presence of militants in the village.

According to sources, Shah, native of Heff-Shirmal area of Shopian, was a category A++ terrorist.

Police identified the slain civilian as 25-year-old old Gulzar Ahmad Mir from Lassipora village in Pulwama, 30km from the main city of Srinagar in the disputed region.

Later, people staged protest against the brutal killing of the youth chanting anti-India and pro-freedom slogans, Kashmir Media Service reported.

However, the operation in the area is now over but search operations were still on, added the police official.

Shah, who was wanted in various terror-related cases, was killed along with Nisar, another local who had joined militancy in May this year. "He had joined militant ranks in March 2014 and used to recruit new cadres into LeT", he said.

Born in a middle class family of Gul Mohammed Shah, who ran his fruit business, Shah was an active supporter of Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group since his school days and had doubled up as a courier boy for the outfit, police said.

Meanwhile, militants in the evening attacked a police vehicle at Damhal Hanjipora in south Kashmir's Kulgam district.

"Both LeT terrorists killed in a clean operation". Soon after the encounter, a group of people started throwing stones at the security forces, eyewitnesses said. The cops fired tear smoke shells, pellets and live ammunition on the mob causing injuries to five protestors.
