Security Forces Neutralize LeT Mastermind in Jammu and Kashmir Encounter

In an ongoing encounter between terrorists and security forces in Dharmsal, Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri District, one terrorist has been killed. Unfortunately, four soldiers, including two officers, lost their lives in the operation. The neutralized terrorist was identified as a high-ranking Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative and a Pakistani national trained on the Pakistan-Afghanistan front.

Active in Rajouri for a year, he was deemed the mastermind behind terrorist attacks in Dangri and Kandi in the region. Sent to revive terrorism, the LeT operative was proficient in IEDs, cave operations, and served as a trained sniper, making his elimination a significant achievement for security forces combating insurgency in the area.
