Early Times Report

Srinagar, May 18: In their continued tough campaign against separatist militants, the security forces on Saturday killed four more of them in two separate encounters in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama and Baramulla districts. One of the slain militants was involved in the murder of Army jawan Aurangzeb in June last year, the police said.
Rifleman Aurangzeb of the J&K Light Infantry attached with Army's counterinsurgency 44 Rashtriya Rifles was posted in south Kashmir's Shopian district. On June 14 last year, he was abducted by militants as he left his unit to celebrate Eid at his home in the frontier district of Poonch. The same evening his bullet-riddled body was found ten kilometres away from the place of kidnapping, evoking a nation-wide outrage. He has posthumously conferred the Shaurya Chakra, a gallantry award given during "no war and no peace" scenarios, on the Independence Day this year.
The police said that Showkat Dar, one of the three militants killed in a firefight with security forces in Panzgam village of Pulwama district on Saturday, was part of the group which abducted and subsequently killed Aurangzeb. "He was part of a group involved in the killing of Army jawan Aurangzeb last year. He was also involved in the killing of a policeman Aqib Ahmed Wagay the same year besides planning and executing series of attacks on the security establishment in the area and "many other civilian atrocities", a police spokesman here said.
The spokesman identified the two other slain militants as Irfan War and Muzaffar Sheikh and said that the trio was affiliated with Hizb-ul-Mujahideen outfit.
Giving the details of the encounter, defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said that the Army's 55 Rashtriya Rifles, J&K police's counterinsurgency Special Operations Group (SOG) and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) laid siege to Panzgam at dawn on Saturday after receiving inputs about the presence of militants in the village. "While the cordon-and-search operation was underway, the terrorists hiding in the area opened fire on security forces. The fire was returned, triggering the encounter," he said.
Meanwhile One militant of Awantipora was killed in a brief shootout with security forces in Sopore area of this north Kashmir district on Saturday, while as one Pakistani national was apprehended in Tangdar area of Kupwara district on Friday late evening.
A top police official told Early Times that; one militant was killed in a brief encounter with security forces in Hatlangoo area of Sopore town on Saturday.
On Friday late evening there were credible inputs about the presence of militants in the areas after which government forces launched cordon and search operation (CASO) in Hatlangoo area of this north Kashmir district, said police official.
Sources said that, CASO was launched by a joint team of Army's 22 RR, 179 bn CRPF and SOG Sopore who had received an intelligence reports about the presence of militants in the area, all the entry and exit points were sealed and house to house searches were carried out.
The militant who was killed in an encounter in Sopore area is a resident of South Kashmir. The slain militant was identified as Waseem Ahmad Naik son of Abdul Gani Naik of Udipora Barsoo Awantipora.
The slain militant Waseem was missing since March this year. The family had filed a missing report in police station concerned.
The authorities had also suspended internet services in Sopore town as a precautionary measure in wake of this search operation.
However police in a statement said that, the hiding militants fired on the search party. The fire was retaliated leading to an encounter," said the spokesman.
"In the ensuing encounter, one militant was killed and the body was retrieved from the site of encounter.
"Incriminating material including arms & ammunition was recovered from the site of encounter," he added.
Citizens are requested not to venture inside the encounter zone since such an area can prove dangerous due to stray explosive materials.
