IAF commandos slain in encounter”

After Wednesday's encounter in Bandipora between security forces and militants, Jammu and Kashmir governor NN Vohra will meet home minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi, India Today reported. The slain commandos were part of two squads comprising 28 Garuds, led by two officers, that were attached to the Rashtriya Rifles, a specialised anti-militancy force of Army personnel drawn from various regiments raised to combat militancy in the Kashmir Valley.

Bandipore: In a fierce shootout between government forces and the militants during wee hours on Wednesday in Hajin area of North Kashmir's Bandipore district two two Air Force commandos and an equal number of militants were killed.

Nasrullah Mir and another militant, Abu Bakar alias Ali Baba of Pakistan were killed in a brief gunfight with forces in Hajin area of Bondipora.

The terrorists are reportedly associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). "Two Garud personnel were martyred in the action". "Two of them succumbed later", said a police official.

The operation started when the army cordoned off Hajin area after a specific input about the presence of rebels, officials said. The firing stopped and a search operation was launched thereafter.

Last week, three rebels and an Indian paramilitary personnel were killed in an attack, when the rebels stormed an army camp outside the airport in Srinagar. "The Chinar Corps commander and all ranks salute the martyrs and offer condolences to the bereaved families". With stepped-up anti-terror operations, the nefarious designs of terrorists have received a serious blow.

According to the Kashmir Media Service, a youth in the Keran area of Kupwara district was also killed in a separate gun battle. As per the report by the Indian Express, over a dozen top leaders of Hizbul Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Toiba and JeM have been killed by security forces since January.
