Masood Azhar's nephew among 3 JeM terrorists killed in Pulwama encounter

India Tv- Jaish-e Muhammad chief Masood Azhar's nephew Talha Rasheed

Indian forces on Tuesday killed Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar's nephew, Talha Rashid, during an operation in a village of Occupied Kashmir.

IGP Kashmir zone, Muneer Khan said: "We will ask Pakistan to collect the body of Masood Azhar's nephew as JeM has owned it".

Kashmir IG Khan said police would launch a thorough investigation to ascertain how such a weapon reached the hands of militants. Hassan Shah, the JeM spokesman, identified other militants as Muhammad Bhai, and Waseem, a resident of Drubgam in Pulwama.

An armyman - Lance Naik Vrahma Pal Singh - was also killed in the encounter.

Reports state that one soldier of the 44 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) also lost his life in the encounter; two other soldiers and a civilian were also wounded.

"Three weapons, including one AK, one M16 rifle and one pistol, besides ammunition were recovered from the encounter site", a police spokesperson said. However, this is the first M4 carbine to be recovered in Kashmir.

So, while there's no deal yet, we wouldn't be surprised if " The Simpsons " is proven right once again. The fact that the Murdoch family empire, or at least parts of it, are for sale is a "big change".

"This weapon (the M4 carbine) is with the special forces of Pakistan army. They have been carried by militants who recently infiltrated from Pakistan", Raja said.

The encounter is on between security forces and terrorists.

Major General B.S. Raju, General Officer Commanding (GOC) the Army's "Victor Force" said at the press conference, "We've recovered M4 carbine, a USA made weapon used by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces".

He said there are about 16-20 more JeM militants in the Valley. Azhar, a fiery orator, was released from Jammu's Kot Balwal jail in January 2000 in exchange for passengers of the hijacked IC-814 Indian Airlines plane. "But we are fully capable of dealing with such situations", he said reiterating the appeal to the civilians not to try to disrupt the anti-militancy operations.

The group, including Sameer Tiger, whose picture with a US-made M4 rifle was seen on social media a few days ago, appeared at the funeral of Wasim Ahmed Ganie and fired a volley of bullets in the air, he said. "He was the main person supporting and guiding the JeM militants who were killed alongwith him", he said. He said that the J&K police with other security forces "is capable enough to get them".
