Killer of Jammu and Kashmir taxi driver among 2 TRF terrorists shot dead in encounters | India News – Times of India


SRINAGAR: Two terrorists of the Pakistan-backed TRF, including the perpetrator of one of the seven civilian killings in J&K over the past 10 days, were shot dead on Monday in separate encounters with the police in north Kashmir‘s Bandipora and south Kashmir’s Anantnag.
IGP (Kashmir range) Vijay Kumar announced through his official Twitter handle that slain Imtiyaz Ahmad Dar carried out the attack in Bandipora last week in which Mohammad Shafi Lone, the president of the local taxi drivers’ association at Shahgund in Hajin, was killed.
The other TRF terrorist killed by the police in the day’s second encounter in Anantnag is still to be identified, the police said. A policeman was injured in the exhange of fire at Khagund Verinag.
Four suspects in the killing of Lone, who was one among three Muslim victims in the latest terror attacks targeting civilians, had been arrested in Bandipora on Sunday. Mastermind Imtiyaz was traced to the Gund Jahangir area of Hajin early on Monday, leading to the encounter in which he was shot dead, the police said.
“Based on specific information, a team from J&K police was about to enter the hideout of an overground TRF worker when there was firing from inside. Just as we had suspected, Imtiyaz was there,” an officer said.
The police found a pistol and a hand grenade on the slain terrorist.
Late on Monday, a third encounter between terrorists and a joint team of the police, the Army’s 34 Rashtriya Rifles and CRPF was reported in the Tulran area of south Kashmir’s Shopian district. Around three terrorists were holed up in a hideout till close to 11pm, the police said.
