SRINAGAR: The rifle recovered from Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist Khurshid Mir, killed in the Sopore encounter, is the same as the one snatched in the Lawaypora attack on a CRPF convoy this March, said Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir zone, Vijay Kumar on Tuesday.
"Rifle recovered from LeT terrorist Khurshid Mir who was killed in Sopore encounter is same as the one snatched in Lawaypora attack, in which 3 CRPF personnel were martyred. Will neutralise second murderer Nadeem Abrar soon," Tweeted Kashmir Zone police citing IGP Kashmir.|
Two jawans were martyred after terrorists attacked a convoy of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Lawaypora on National Highway on March 25. Police had then said that LeT was involved in the attack.
On Monday, three LeT terrorists were neutralised including top Commander Mudasir Pandit, who was involved in the killing of three policemen and four others, in an encounter by security forces in Sopore of Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district.
