Amarnath Yatra attack mastermind Abu Ismail shot dead in Kashmir

Amarnath Yatra attack mastermind Abu Ismail shot dead in Kashmir

Overground workers provide logistic support to militants by organising their hideouts and by keeping an eye on the movement of security forces. Ismail's associate was identified as Abu Qasim.

He said that two AK-47 rifles were recovered from the possession of the slain militants.

Meanwhile, 4G internet service have been blocked in Srinagar. However, the services were restored later in the evening. Hizbul Mujahideen leaders Burhan Wani and Sabzar Bhat were killed by security forces earlier.

"The special thing about this operation is that it was based on wishes of people".

"As the security forces closed in, the hiding terrorists resorted to heavy firing to break the security cordon and escape but luck ran out and both the terrorists were gunned down after a brief encounter", said the police official.

He said the operation to track Abu Ismail needed a lot of meticulous intelligence, patience and planning.

Another terrorist was killed in today's encounter.

Vaid had then said that the investigation in the Amarnath Yatra attack has revealed that it was carried out by Ismail. Beyond religious issues, many Kashmiris say that Indian forces harass and brutalize them and that Kashmiris should rule themselves. He said militant leadership has to be eliminated because they also misguide our children and lure them into this.

The militant activities took a spike after Hizbul Mujahidin commander Burhan Wani was killed in July previous year. He was also involved in several other attacks. "It is, therefore, important to kill the militant leadership". We killed Abu Qasim, Abu Dujana and now Abu Ismail. "There is a dearth of a leader in LeT and it will give us more opportunity to go after the remaining militants", the army official said.

According to sources, the police had information that the terrorists were holed up in a house in Arigam and launched an operation to neutralise them.

"I compliment police for the high quality input and CRPF for making sure that there was no collateral damage in the area".

Eight pilgrims were killed and 13 others injured in the attack on the Amarnath yatris bus.
