Top Lashkar commander Abu Ismael, accused of killing eight Amaranth Yatris in July, shot dead in encounter
Srinagar: In a major success, the security forces on Thursday gunned down top Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Abu Ismail.
Ismail’s proximity with the local Hizbul leadership came to light when he went on a joint recruitment drive in South Kashmir. Ismail was suspected of being involved in the killing of a young Sarpanch (village head) in Pampore in April besides being a member of a LeT module which carried out several bank robberies in recent months.
