Shopian (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Aug. 02 (ANI): Suspecting presence of terrorists, the Indian Army and the police on Wednesday, launched a cordon and search operation at Sugan village of Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district. In a major breakthrough, LeT chief commander Abu Dujana of Pakistan along with his accomplice Arif were killed in an encounter with security forces at Hakripora village in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Tuesday morning. Following this, the separatists today had called for 'bandh' to protest the killing of two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists and a civilian. The civilian was killed in protest that erupted following an encounter in which LeT terrorist Abu Dujana and Arif were gunned down by security forces. This is security forces' another big achievement after gunning down of Hizbul-Mujahideen chief Burhan Wani last year. (ANI)
