The big news Modi thanks ‘close friend’ Shinzo Abe for bullet train and nine other top stories

"At about 4.15 pm, they fired on the search party". "He remained under radar and finally after two months of hardwork, we managed to kill him today". Abu Ismail was the top commander of the Lashkar and made the entire conspiracy to attack Amarnath pilgrims.

The Amarnath attack had left eight people dead and injured at least 18 on July 10. "It hardly took half-an-hour to complete the operation", said Khan.

According to a senior police official, the Shopian police had arrested a militant recently who had revealed information about Ismail's plans that lead to the LeT militant getting trapped during the encounter. "Ismail was a top rated militant commander for us and he had inflicted heavy casualties on the forces while being active in Kashmir", said a police official. "The terrorist was responsible for the attack on Amarnath Yatra", DG CRPF Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar told the news agency.

The Indian authorities said they had been closing in on Abu Ismail in recent days. "Qasim was A militant".

Both were Pakistani nationals and two AK 47s and UBGLs were recovered from the encounter site.

"Eliminating the leadership is our priority".

When asked who their next "target" is, Khan said, "It's not about the next target".

Abu Ismail had replaced Abu Dujana who was killed by security forces in Pulwama.

He said that no collateral damage was done during the encounter. "The 50th battalion of Rashtriya Rifles did a good job", he said adding now there would be leadership vacuum in LeT.

As per preliminary reports, Abu Ismail, along with an accomplice was gunned down on Thursday afternoon.

"Ismail carried out attack on our election party in April in Sempora area in which a head constable was killed". Besides, he was also involved in killing of Sarpanches of Kandizal and Kakapora. "He was also involved in several other attacks", said DGP Kashmir SP Vaid. "The identity of the second militant is being established", IG CRPF Inspector General Ravideep Sahi said.
