Kashmir: 3 LeT terrorists sent by Pakistan to target Amarnath Yatra killed in Srinagar encounter


Three terrorists sent from Pakistan to attack the Amarnath Yatra have been killed by the security forces. All three terrorists belonged to the banned terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET).

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Vijay Kumar said that according to documents and other objectionable material, one of the slain terrorists has been identified as Abdullah Gauri, a resident of Faisalabad, Pakistan.

He said, “In an encounter in the Bemina area of Srinagar, two terrorists of the banned terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET) have been killed by the Srinagar police. Now all three have been killed, who were sent with the intention of attacking the Amarnath Yatra.”

This action by the Jammu and Kashmir Police comes at a time when security has been beefed up in the Kashmir Valley for the Amarnath Yatra starting June 30. Earlier, on Monday, the Jammu and Kashmir administration had made Aadhaar certification mandatory for annual pilgrims.
