Guerrilla killed in Kashmir

Srinagar: A “divisional commander” of the Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) terror outfit was killed in a gunfight in Kashmir today evening, police said.

“After receiving specific information about the presence of militants in Ichgosa village (of Pulwama district) police, Rashtriya Rifles and the Central Reserve Police Force laid a cordon around the village and started searches,” a police officer told.

“Militants hiding in the village started firing at the security forces, triggering an shootout which ended with the killing of Altaf Baba alias Gazi Baba, the divisional commander of JeM for south Kashmir,” the officer said.

“Altaf Baba joined the JeM outfit in 2008. He was motivated by Sajad Afghani alias Ahsan Bhai of Pakistan to join militant ranks,” police said.
