At least one terrorist has been killed in an ongoing encounter between security forces and terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama on Tuesday.

In another operation, the police said that a crack team of Jammu and Kashmir police cordoned off a house in the Samboora area of Pulwama district where two JeM terrorists were expected to be hidden. "The slain militant is Moor Muhammad Tantray alias Noor Trali, commander of JeM outfit".

In July 2017, after the Aripal encounter in which three JeM terrorists were killed, Tantray went underground and soon became the key man of the terror outfit in coordinating and organizing attacks at different places, he said. There was input about presence of 2/3 militants near NHW planning to attack convoy. "The operation is in progress", said the spokesman.

Noor, who is an offender in a case, was booked in a Delhi jail for some time in 2003.

WhatsApp To Stop Working On BlackBerry OS, Windows 8.0 Phone
WhatsApp has stopped working on updates for other OS versions like Windows Phone 7, Android 2.1, Android 2.2 and iOS 6 in 2016. The Facebook-owned instant messaging app will end support for some smartphone platforms by the end of this year (December 31).


Security forces are calling Noor Mohammad's killing a huge success as he had become a "headache" in the Valley.

The police said the militant killed in Samboora village was identified. "He was granted a 15-day parole in 2015, but he had been on the run since then", the officer said.

"Encounter going on since last evening in Awantipura district". He was wanted in various terror incidents earlier this year, including a suicide attack at the BSF camp at Srinagar airport.
