Two terrorists killed in Poonch encounter

October 29, 2009 09:45 IST

A self-styled commander of Lashkar-e-Tayiba was among two terorrists killed in an encounter with security forces in Poonch district early on Thursday morning.

In a joint operation, Rashtriya Rifles troops and police shot dead the self-styled commander Abu Umar and another unidentified ultra, police said. Umar, a close associate of self-styled LeT divisional commander Dawood, was injured in another encounter a week ago.

Two AK rifles, 11 grenades and 120 rounds of ammunition were recovered from him.
