Three terrorists, including the nephew of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar, have been killed in an encounter in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.

Azhar's nephew has been identified as Abu Talha. He was an A++ category terrorist.

The encounter broke out in the district's Kandi Aglar village on Monday. The other two slain terrorists, also belonging to the Jaish-e-Mohammed have been identified as Mehmood Bhai and Wasim Ahmed Ganai.


"Three weapons, including one AK, an M16 rifle and a pistol, besides ammunition were recovered from the site of the encounter," a police official said.

"It is the same group that was wanted for the attack on the police check-post in Rajpora", he added.

According to the police, a soldier of 44 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) was martyred and two soldiers and a civilian injured during this operation. The encounter has ended, said cops.

On Monday, a joint team of the Army's 44 RR, Special Operations Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) cordoned off the village after intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists there.

The security personnel carrying out search operations were fired upon by hiding terrorists after which a gunfight started late last evening.

A civilian called Showkat Ahmad was also injured when protesters clashed with the security forces to disrupt the operation against the terrorists.

Internet services have been suspended in Pulwama district to check the spread of rumours.

PULWAMA: Security forces on Monday killed the nephew of Pakistan-based terrorist Maulana Masood Azhar, and two other terrorists from Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama, acknowledged a spokesman of the terror outfit, reported ANI.

Army chief Bipin Rawat said Jaish's acknowledgement is proof of terror emanating from Pakistan.

"This makes it clear that terrorists are getting support from across the border," said Rawat.

He added that it's of little concern to him that the nephew of the Pathankot attack mastermind was killed.

"Doesn't matter if he is Masood Azhar's nephew or anyone else, we aim at neutralizing all terrorists no matter where they belong," said Rawat.



Jammu and Kashmir Police said JeM's acknowledgement is a first.

"(This is the) first time they owned a Pak terrorist, that he is nephew of Masood Azhar. We'll ask them to collect body because they owned it," said Muneer Khan, Kashmir's inspector general of police.


Troops of 182 and 183 battalions of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), 44 Rashtriya Rifles and the Jammu and Kashmir Police were carrying out a cordon and search operation in the region, when the encounter broke out.

"It was an excellent operation, nicely coordinated between police, Army and CRPF," said Khan.

Earlier, a JeM spokesman confirmed the killings.

"Three militants killed during an encounter at Kandi Aglar village of Pulwama district includes nephew of Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar and outfit's divisional commander," a JeM spokesman said in a statement, adding that Azhar's nephew, Talha Rasheed, was a JeM commander.


The terror outfit's spokesman said the two other terrorists who were killed in the encounter include Muhammad Bhai, a non-local, and Waseem, a resident of Drubgam, Pulwama.
