Telangana police's help sought to identify militant killed in Kashmir

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.

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.
