Earlier, a grenade was lobbed by terrorists in Srinagar’s Barbarshah area on Saturday afternoon. A civilian was killed in the attack while three others were injured in the same incident.
Meanwhile, In south Kashmir’s Shopian district, one terrorist was killed while another one surrendered during an encounter on Friday. Both the terrorists belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba. One AK-56 rifle was recovered from the surrendered militant.
”One terrorist was killed and his body was retrieved from the site of the encounter. Meanwhile, the family members of the other trapped terrorist were called to the encounter site to persuade the other one to surrender. It was due to the great efforts and utmost patience of Police, security forces and repeated surrender appeals with the help of his family members, the trapped terrorist identified as Sahil Ramzan Dar son of Mohammad Ramzan Dar resident of Beminipora linked with proscribed terror outfit LeT ultimately surrendered and laid down his arms before the joint security forces.
