Jammu: One Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist killed in an encounter with 50 RR & JammuAndKashmir Police in Pulwama’s Let Pora. The mastermind of the Sunjuwan terror attack was on Monday killed by the Army in south Kashmir.

Mufti Waqas was killed in an encounter at Hatiwara area of Lethpora village in a joint operation of the Army’s 50RR, CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir Police’s SOG.

“The mastermind of the Sunjuwan terrorist attack and Letapore terrorist attack, Jaish-e-Mohammad operational commander Mufti Waqas, Cat A++, has been eliminated in a surgical operation,” said Srinagar-based Defence spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia.
