Two militants were gunned down on Tuesday in an encounter with the police and other armed forces in Awneera area of south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
According to reports, a joint team of Army’s 1 Rashtriya Rifles, SOG of Jammu and Kashmir Police and the CRPF launched a cordon and search operation in Awneera following inputs about the presence of militants there last night.
An official said two militants were killed in the gunfight that broke out before dawn on Tuesday. The identity of the slain militants was later confirmed and searches were carried out in the whole area.
The slain duo were identified as Sayar Ahmad Bhat son of Sanauallah of Manchowa Kulgam and Shakir Ahmad Wagay of Awneera Shopian. Both the slain were inspired by the ISIS ideology.
Meanwhile, mobile Internet was suspended in the district following the encounter.
Meanwhile, in a statement, Jammu and Kashmir Police said the two militants shot dead by the security forces during a gunfight in southern Shopian district were inspired by Islamic State ideology.
A police spokesman identified the slain as Sayar Ahmad Bhat of Yaripora Kulgam and Shakir Ahmad Wagay of Awneera Shopian. “As per police records both the killed militants were inspired by IS ideology. They were wanted by law for their complicity in crimes including attack on security establishments,” he said.
According to the police records, they were part of groups involved in planning & executing attacks in the area and many other civilian atrocities, said the spokesman.
Shakir Wagay, according to police records, was involved in Case FIR No 25/2019 pertaining to the killing of civilian Irfan Hameed Sheikh of Zainapora.
“Incriminating materials including arms & ammunition was recovered from the site of encounter. All these materials have been taken in the case records for the purpose of investigation and to probe their complicity in other crimes,” he said.
After the encounter, the ISIS released a statement on an IS website saying that “soldiers of the caliphate” had been wounded in a clash in the Kashmiri town of Zainapora.
A statement from police headquarters in Srinagar, the region’s largest city, said two militants killed in the gunbattle were “inspired by IS ideology” and were wanted in connection with “terror crimes.”
Police say they came under fire while searching for the suspects.
The Islamic State group occasionally claims responsibility for deadly clashes with authorities but its hardline ideology has not attained mainstream acceptance in Kashmir, where militants complain it is trying to hijack their independence movement.
