Two terrorists linked to the proscribed terror outfit Lashkhar-e-Taiba (Let) were killed in an encounter with security forces in the Alshipora area of Shopian in Jammu and Kashmir. The encounter broke out after security forces launched a counter-terrorism operation in the Alshipora area after receiving information about the presence of terrorists there.
In another update, it said, “Two (02) #terrorists killed. Search going on. Further details shall follow.”
The slain terrorists have been identified as Morifat Maqbool and Jazim Farooq, alias Abrar, of LeT.
