TSL News Network

PULWAMA, Feb 1: 2 terrorists of Jaish-e-Muhammad outfit were killed by security forces in an overnight encounter in Drabgam area of District Pulwama.

The two terrorists killed have been identified as Shahid Ahmad Baba, a resident of  Drabgam and Inayat Ahmad, a resident of Arihal. Police in a handout said that based on a credible input about the presence of terrorists in Drabgam area of District Pulwama, a cordon and search operation was launched during the intervening night jointly by Police and security forces in the area.

As the searches were going on, the search party was fired upon by the terrorists. The fire was retaliated leading to a gunfight. In the ensuing encounter, two terrorists were killed and the bodies were retrieved from the site of encounter. The killed terrorists have been identified as Shahid Mushtaq Baba son of Mushtaq Ahmed Baba resident of Drabgam Pulwama and Inayat Abdullah Zigar son of Mohammad Abdullah Zigar resident of Arihal Pulwama.

Both the terrorists were affiliated with proscribed terror outfit JeM and Baba was wanted by the law for his complicity in terror crimes. As per police records, Shahid Baba was active in Shopian and Pulwama areas and had a long history of terror crime records for which several terror cases were registered against him. He was involved in conspiring and executing several terror attacks on security establishments in the area including grenade attacks.

It is apt to mention here that Inayat was an active supporter of terror activities of JeM for a long time though he joined the outfit as active cadre very recently. Pertinently due to the efforts of security forces it was a clean operation and no collateral damage took place during the encounter. Arms & ammunition were recovered from the site of encounter. All these materials have been taken in case records for further investigation and probe their complicity in other terror cases.
