Indian Army

The killings of JeM' leaders come after China has once again blocked a proposal at the United Nations to list Jaish-e-Muhammad's chief Masood Azhar as a globally designated terrorist, irking its neighbouring country, India.

'I'm thankful that for the first time Pakistan has owned a militant killed in Kashmir in an encounter on Monday. The third militant killed with them is Waseem Ganai, a local Kashmiri.

The officer added that as security forces marched towards Aglar Kandi, terrorists opened fire. The AK 47, however, remains the mainstay weapon with them, they said. He said, the matter will be taken up through proper channels. "It is a subject matter of thorough investigation now", he said.

An Army jawan was martyred in the encounter that broke out between terrorists and security forces in the Kandi belt of Aglar area in Pulwama district, they said. 1 Army man lost his life while two others injured. Police say that the civilian was hit in cross-fire.

Troops of 182 battalion and 183 battalion Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), along with 44 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and the Jammu and Kashmir Police were hauling out a row of search operation (CASO) in the region, when the encounter took place. "But we are fully capable of dealing with such situations", he said reiterating the appeal to the civilians not to try to disrupt the anti-militancy operations.

The other two have been identified as Mehmood Bhai, the so-called divisional commander of Jaish in the south and Wasim Ahmed Ganie.

The militants also raised slogans before fleeing, the official said.

Hizb Chief Syed Salahuddin said that the flowing blood in Kashmir from past seven decades will show its colour one day. The photograph which surfaced on Facebook and some other social media sites on Thursday had been captured in an apple orchard somewhere in south Kashmir, the police had said.

"This US-made M4 carbine is presently with a lot of armies with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

The police and the Army confirmed M 4 carbine rifle was is the use of the militants.

"M4 Carbine is a US-made weapon, presently with a lot of armies in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and it is also with the Special Forces of the Pakistan Army".

He said, this was first time that a USA made weapon was recovered from the militants in Kashmir. But the forces have reason to believe that newer the weapon, easier they are to handle, even for newly recruited militants.

Major General BS Raju clarified that the weapon seized in Pulwama Encounter includes M4 Carbine.

He said there are about 16-20 more JeM militants in the Valley. The security forces also gunned down three terrorists in the operation.
