No youth from Srinagar is on the list of terrorists anymore. IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar gave this information on the official Twitter handle of the police on Sunday.
After Lashkar Command Ishfaq Rashid Khan, who was included in the list, was shot dead by security forces in an encounter on Saturday.
Kashmir police claimed that all the militants living in Srinagar have been killed after Lashkar commander Ishfaq Rashid Khan, a resident of Sojith area, was killed along with his partner Pulwama resident Ejaz Ahmed Bhat on Saturday in Ranbir Garh area on the outskirts of Srinagar. Ishfaq was the only surviving terrorist from Srinagar district, who had been wanted for a long time. Many terrorists from Srinagar district were active in Kashmir after 1990s but now they have been completely eliminated. The police are considering it a great success. Due to the activism of the local terrorists, their handlers could easily carry out their nefarious activities in this summer capital. Their killing has destroyed the local link of terrorists.
