  • Kashmir Indian forces kill Jaish-e Mohammad commander in Pulwama says Defence Ministry

The Indian security forces have killed a top militant commander, Noor Mohammad Tantray in the restive Kashmir valley during an overnight raid, which ended on Tuesday (26 December) morning.

The security forces had launched a search operation based on information about the presence of two terrorists in Pulwama district.

Police in Indian-administered Kashmir say they have killed a militant separatist leader in a shoot-out outside the city of Srinagar.

Tantray, 47, a resident of Tral in Pulwama district, became a "key man" of the JeM, responsible for planning and coordination before carrying out attacks at different places.

India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy. A new video featuring Jadhav was released to the media by the foreign office after the meeting ended.

Army's 1 Sector deputy commander, Sanjeev Saroch, while speaking to reporters said Noor Trali's killing was "a major blow" to the JeM and "another major success" for the security forces.

Three Jaish suicide attackers were killed when security forces foiled an attack on the camp of the 182nd battalion of the BSF near Srinagar airport and Air force Station on October 3. This cover up helped him plan and execute the attacks in and around Kashmir valley, without being coming under the radar of the forces, NDTV reported. Eight security personnel and three militants were killed in that attack.

Besides Uri attack, Chota Noora was allegedly involved in a grenade attack on a minister's cavalcade in Tral, in September this year.

"No-one would suspect him to be a terrorist and that is why JeM recruited him as an over-ground worker", the officer said.
