Mr Khan said all the three militants holed up in the area were killed. We have recovered the bodies and two ak rifles and a pistol so far, he added. The IGP said as per the photograph released recently by the Zakir Musa, all the slain militants were there in the picture and belong to the group. Zakir has formed his own party after he threatened Hurriyat and other separatists leaders declaring that “ armed struggle” in Kashmir was not for secular movement but for Islam.
Zakir was expelled from the Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) but was later appointed Al-Qaeda head in India. With this a total of 17 militants, including five infiltrators were killed in different encounters this month in the valley and on Line of Control (LoC). (UNI)
