Top Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Azad Ahmad Malik along with other five Islamist terrorists have been killed in an encounter by the security forces in Shalgund village of Dashnipora in Bijbehara area of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Friday.

The LeT commander Azad Ahmad Malik who has been shot down during the operation was reportedly involved in the assassination of Kashmiri Journalist Syed Shujaat Bukhari in Srinagar. Bukhari and his two guards were killed by these LeT terrorists outside Rising Kashmir office in Srinagar on June 14.

Army spokesperson Rajesh Kalia speaking to the media said that six terrorists have been killed in the gunfight. He said that they have recovered arms and ammunition from the encounter site.

The slain terrorists have been identified as Azad Ahmad Malik alias Dada of Arwani, Basit Mir of Khanabal, Unais or Anees of Bijbehara, Aqib of Waghama Bijbehara, Shahid from Awantipora and Firdaus Ahmad of Machpona Pulwama.

Reportedly, a joint team of army’s 3RR and SOG Anantnag launched a cordon and search operation early morning in Shalgund-Satkipora in Dachnipora area of Bijbehara following inputs about the presence of terrorists. As soon as the forces approached the suspected spot, the hiding terrorists opened fire leading to a gunfight.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police has registered a case and initiated the investigation in the matter. According to the official sources, no collateral damage has taken place on the Army side during this incident.

Meanwhile, the security officials have requested citizens not to enter the encounter zone since such an area can prove dangerous due to stray explosive materials.

The killing of Journalist Shujaat Bukhari had led to severe propaganda in the media, as the left-leaning media could not accept the fact that terrorists backed by the separatists had killed one of their own. Instead, they resorted to politics to blame his vocal critic scientist Prof. Anand Ranganathan who found Bukhari was not a ‘moderate’.

The Left-liberal cabal had deliberately chosen to ignore the fact that the Islamic terrorists backed by the terrorist state Pakistan was behind the killing of controversial journalist Shujaat Bukhari. Instead, they felt ‘such killings’ are usually preceded by hate messages and malicious campaigns on social media and trained guns on people who had criticised Bukhari for his views.
