An Indian Air Force Garud was also killed and one army soldier injured in the operation, he said. The GOC said that they were keeping a watch over Chandergeer Hajin, where Saturday's encounter occurred, since last two-three day and based on a specific on Saturday, they launched a joint operation which resulted in killing of six Lashkar-e-Toiba militants who were all foreigners.

"Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police S.P. Vaid refuted the claims of the Islamic State that claimed that the Zakura, Srinagar, attack on Friday in which a police officer and a militant were killed was the first IS attack in Kashmir".

Vaid confirmed that one of the militants killed was Owaid alias Osama, 25, the son of Lakhvi's brother Zaki-ur-Rehman Makki.

"We inducted special forces into the area and in addition along with the intelligence network and police and the CRPF, the law and order in Hajin was brought under control", he said.

Five militants were gunned down in north Kashmir's Bandipora district on Saturday in an encounter in which a Garud commando of the Indian Air Force (IAF) was also killed, a defence spokesperson said.

On October 10, terrorists had attacked a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) vehicle in Jammu and Kashmir's Sanat Nagar Chowk.

"Local terrorists should have the wisdom to realise you are not the proxy of Pakistan", said Sandhu while asking them to work towards peace in the Kashmir Valley.




"Kashmir valley needs to be free from violence, terror, guns and drugs". "The cold brought them out of the woods and they took refuge in a house and were spotted", the sources said.

"We look forward to continue the operations and hope to restore peace in the valley as soon as possible", he said. He said Hajin was an area of concern because of heavy militant presence but they launched a number of operations since September and tasted success. J&K DGP S P Vaid had said, "Six LeT terrorists including two commanders, Mehmood and Zargam, were eliminated, and weapons and ammunition recovered from them".

"We are working on two lines". "Hajin was witness to terror for the a year ago or so".

"Hajin was an area of concern for us as the militancy was reviving there". Fortunately yesterday's operation has cleaned up the area and people will live free of terror.

"It's easy to call yourself Mujahideen. Those who are looking for a way to come back, they can discretely contact us on our helplines", said Hassan.

IGP of CRPF, Zulfikar said that after the surrender by the local footballer Majid Mir, we are getting feelers from local militants about their intention to surrender. We want the youth, who have joined militancy, to return.
