Why Shopian Has Become the Hotbed for Encounters and Graveyard For Militants?

“In one of the most successful operations this year, six Lashkar militants were killed in an encounter with security forces in Wagahama area of Bijbehara in Anantnag district,” a police spokesman said.

The security forces had launched an operation in the foothills of Wagahama Suktipora on Thursday night following information about the presence of militants at a hideout there, he said.

“The search operation turned into an encounter when the hiding militants opened fire on the security forces. In the retaliatory action, six militants were killed and six weapons recovered from the hideout,” he added.

The slain militants were identified as Azad Malik, Unais Shafi, Shahid Bashir, Basit Ishtiyaq, Aqib Najar and Firdous Najar, all local residents, he added.

Top Lashkar-e-Toiba commander Azad Malik, whom police claim was involved in the assassination of journalist Shujaat Bukhari, was among six militants killed in a gunfight with security forces in Bijbehara area of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
