Another win for forces: Top LeT terrorist Waseem Shah eliminated

Two terrorists have been gunned down in an encounter with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Saturday, news agency ANI reported.

Shah, a college drop-out, was responsible for recruiting young people to join the Lashkar-e-Taiba, police sources said.

People took to the streets in Litter area of the district and started forceful demonstrations against the killing of two youth by the troops during a siege and search operation.

"Waseem was one of the notorious militants operating in South Kashmir".

The house in which the duo was trapped suffered extensive damage in the fire fight. His associate Nisar had joined terrorists ranks this year.

Jammu and Kashmir Police had been tracking the movements of Shah, who is considered as the "don" of Heff, another stronghold of militants in South Kashmir's Shopian district.

The police said that 31-year-old Shah and his bodyguard Nisar Ahmed Mir were trapped in a private house in Pulwama's Littar area when the security forces including the J&K police's counterinsurgency Special Operations Group, the Army's Rashtriya Rifles and the CRPF launched a cordon-and-search operation early on Saturday.

A police spokesman while confirming killing of civilian said he lost life in cross firing.

Shah was reportedly a category A++ terrorist. According to the reports, the slain militants belonged to Pakistan-backed terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Thousands of people participated in the funeral prayers of youth at their ancestral villages in south Kashmir.

As the fighting raged, anti-India protests erupted in Litter and neighbouring villages, leading to clashes between rock-throwing residents and government forces who fired shotgun pellets and tear gas.
