Infiltration Attempt By Pakistan Thwarted At J&K’s Handwara
Intruders had opened fire on security forces before counter-firing was initiated.
An infiltration attempt by militants from Pakistan was apparently thwarted by Indian security forces in Jammu And Kashmir’s Handwara. The intruders had apparently opened fire on security forces before counter-firing was initiated by them, leading to the operation being quashed. A few weeks ago, it was in Handwara itself that two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists were killed by security forces. Among them was Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Naseer-u-din Lone, according to Vijay Kumar, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kashmir.
It had come to light that Lone was involved in the killing of three CRPF jawans at Sopore on April 18 and another three CRPF jawans at Handwara on May 4, according to Kumar. In Shopian, one more such encounter had taken place only a few days ago. At least four militants were killed and one captured alive by security forces in the district. They were identified as Shakoor Ahmed Parry, founder and district commander of Al Badr, Suhail Bhat, Zubair Nengroo and Shakir-ul-Jabbar.
