Srinagar, Aug 28 (UNI) Four militants, including a self-styled District Commander of Al-Badr were killed by security forces in an encounter, which ensued during a Cordon and Search Operation (CASO) in south Kashmir district of Shopian on Friday afternoon, a police spokesman said.

Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kashmir Range, Vijay Kumar said the killing of Al-Badr district commander identified as Shakoor Parray and three other militants was a big success for security forces in south Kashmir.

Mr Kumar said he had motivated about ten youths to join his organisation. However, four were eliminated today and one was arrested alive,he said.
He said another militant Suhail Bhat was responsible for the kidnapping a panch Nissar Ahmad Bhat, resident of Khonmoh in Srinagar. He said Nissar has gone to the house of Suhail Bhat. However, Nissar after leaving the house of Suhail was abducted in Shopian and his body buried in an orchard. The body was on Friday recovered from orchards.
The Spokesman said on a tip-off about the presence of militants, troops of Rashtriya Rifles (RR), Special Operation Group (SOG) of Jammu and Kashmir Police and CRPF launched a joint search operation at Kiloora Shopian.
However, an encounter ensued after a search party was moving towards a particular area where the militants were hiding.

Bhopal, Oct 31 (UNI) In a frontal assault targeting his predecessor, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday alleged that Congress state President Kamal Nath is unable to renounce his pride and now considers even the Election Commission of India’s decision as erroneous.
“In Mr Nath’s view, his leader Rahul Gandhi is also wrong! He feels similarly regarding government officials and even threatens them. All this signifies Mr Nath’s disappointment. He is pained by the fact that he had to relinquish power but while he was holding the reins he did work in public interest,” the senior politician conveyed via social media.

Bhopal, Oct 31 (UNI) Rajya Sabha Member Digvijaya Singh on Saturday vociferously objected to Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee President Kamal Nath’s name being deleted from the star campaigners’ list by the Election Commission of India.
“I have respect for the ECI that has taken cognisance of my party’s complaints and acted on them. However, removal of Mr Nath’s name constitutes a violation of rules as that is the exclusive jurisdiction of political parties and not the ECI.
