  • Pulwama encounter Top LeT terrorist Ayub Lelhari gunned down

Police on Wednesday shot dead a top-ranking Lashkar-e-Tayyeba terrorist Ayub Lelhari during a brief encounter in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.

Earlier this month, reports had emerged that Ayub was trapped with his men during an encounter in a village of Pulwama district but managed to escape from the site.

Muhammad Ayub Lone alias Ayub Lalhari was reportedly travelling in a Tavera vehicle when the security forces intercepted it outside Banderpora village of Pulwama's Koil area, leading to a brief exchange of fire. "He opened fire but was killed in the retaliatory fire by security forces", the SSP said. Sources said that Lelhari was recently injured in an encounter with police in which one Lashkar terrorist from Pakistan was killed in Pampore.
