Srinagar, Mar 15 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir police has sought help from Telangana police to identify a militant who was killed in an encounter with security forces along with two other ultras in Anantnag.
Militant outfit ''Ansar Ghazwatul Hind'' (AGH) has claimed that one of the three militants killed in the encounter was a resident of Hyderabad. The outfit identified the slain militant as Mohammad Taufeeq, alias Sultan Zabul Al Hindi alias Zarr Al Hindi, who has joined the group in 2017.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Anantnag in a letter to Director General of Police (DGP), Telangana sought help in identifying the slain militant. He said that an encounter took place between security forces and militants at Hakoora, Anantnag in which three militants were killed. Illegal arms and ammunition was also seized.

As such, it is requested that matter may be verified and necessary details shared with this office at the earliest please, the SSP said in the letter.
