The authorities said they had fatally shot the militant, Abu Ismail, who was connected to several recent attacks, and a man whom they called a fellow "terrorist" who was with him, after a brief gun battle on the outskirts of Kashmir's biggest city, Srinagar.

He said that following the attack on Amarnath yatris, the security forces had launched a massive hunt to track down Abu Ismail.

"After Abu Ismail martyred the Amarnath pilgrims on July 10, he was our main target", Kashmir Range Inspector-General (IG) of Police, Munir Khan, said at a presser in Srinagar.

"J&K Police was after Ismail since the Amarnath attack. The fire was returned by the troops and in the brief encounter, both militants were killed".

He said that two AK-47 rifles were recovered from the possession of the slain militants.

Khan also said that militant leadership has to be eliminated because they also misguide children and lure them into this. Ismail was also involved in 15 other terror attacks in south Kashmir and bank robberies.

Meanwhile, ANI said that mobile internet services had been blocked in Srinagar following the encounter.

The militant activities took a spike after Hizbul Mujahidin commander Burhan Wani was killed in July previous year.

The attack near the Indian Army headquarters in Srinagar had left an assistant sub inspector of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and a constable dead and three soldiers injured.

He said killing of LeT commanders was a great success for the forces in the valley and such operations will continue in a swift manner. We killed Abu Qasim, Abu Dujana and now Abu Ismail.

The gunfight broke at Aerbagh area in Nowgam after a joint team of police and security forces conducted an operation following specific information about the movements of the terrorists.
