Pakistan militant killed in encounter with security forces

Paramilitary troopers stand guard after a gunfight with militants at Hajin village in Kashmir's Bandipora district in October 2017

A Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militant was killed in a fierce encounter by security forces in north Kashmir's Bandipora district on Thursday, official sources said.

It was around 5 am when the militants hiding in the area started firing at the security forces.

No casualties have been reported so far, he added.

"One terrorist of LET [Lashkar-e-Taiba] apparently FT [foreign terrorist] killed in an encounter in Hajin Bandipore today morning in a joint operation of J&K Police/Army/ CRPF", director general of state police SP Vaid tweeted. "In the exchange of fire a militant was killed", they said.

Since then, Turnbull has met Trump in NY , but Friday's meeting in Washington was their first in the context of an official visit. Mr Turnbull left the White House after an initial delay as the incident was being investigated.

The police are believed to have recovered arms and ammunition, including AK-47 rifles, from the site of the encounter.

Following the encounter people came out and pelted stones on security forces triggering clashes.

Since the body was already in the village, a request was made to the villagers to handover the body to police.

Pertinently, some elements on social media claimed that government forces dismantled the grave of the slain non-local militant at Hajin who was laid to rest by locals on Tuesday.
