Srinagar: Of the two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists killed in an encounter in Srinagar’s Bemina area, one was a Pakistani national, police said on Tuesday.
“As per the documents and other incriminating materials found, one of the killed terrorist has been identified as Abdullah Goujri, resident of Faisalabad, Pakistan. A big success,” tweeted J&K Police quoting Inspector General Police Kashmir Zone Vijay Kumar.
“This was the same group of terrorists who escaped from Sopore encounter. We have been tracking their movement.”
The second terrorist was identified as Adil Hussain Mir, alias Sufian alias Musab, of Anantnag district, the police said, adding that he crossed over to Pakistan in 2018 on a visit visa from Wagah.
