"LeT terrorist Abu Ismail of Pakistan along with his accomplice killed in Nowgam".

He said Ismail was the mastermind of July 10 attack on Amarnath yatris in Botengoo area of south Kashmir's Anantnag district in which eight pilgrims were killed and two dozen others injured.

A massive hunt was launched in south Kashmir to track down Ismail after the Amarnath attack. In what is being deemed as a success by the security forces in Kashmir, militants are now surrendering in increasing numbers before the police. It resulted in the death of eight people and caused serious injuries to around a dozen pilgrims who were returning from the yatra. It is not that whole militancy has been wiped out by their killing. These militants had been the prime targets since the July attack for security agencies.

Two AK 47s were also recovered from the encounter site in Nowgam. Militant leadership is important and that has to be eliminated because these motivate and instigate young boys to join the cobweb of militancy.

Zeenat-ul-Islam alias Alkama is one among the five top terrorists that are next on the hit list of the security forces.

Police said that the two militants were involved in the killing of a sarpanch of village Hawoora and weapon snatching incidents and "instigating youth to pelt stones".


He, however, said, "We have a long way to go and we will keep on trying".

LeT has been blamed for a string of deadly attacks inside India, most notably the Mumbai carnage in November 2008 when heavily armed gunmen battled commandos on the streets of the financial capital, killing 166 people.

He said that Ismail is believed to have entered the Valley sometime in August or September a year ago.

His group included 8 to 9 men comprising local and foreign terrorists.

Ismail according to police was among the most wanted militants active in the restive region.
