Top JeM commander killed in Pulwama encounter

Jammu and Kashmir The militant Noor Mohammed was shot dead in south Kashmir’s Samboora

He was also involved in an attack of October on the BSF camp near Srinagar airport.

According to Jammu and Kashmir police chief SP Vaid, an encounter had started between the security forces and holed up terrorists in Samboora village after the area was surrounded by the security forces late on Monday evening. He had also become the chief finance handler of JeM in Kashmir and regularly received funds from across the border, said sources.

A police officer told The Indian Express in October that Noor's physical appearance proved to be his biggest disadvantage, he said, "He is just three feet tall", and "So he can be easily identified, making his movement hard". Top commander of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) militant outfit was killed in an overnight gunfight with a joint party of police and army here. There was an input about presence of two to three militants near highway planning to attack convoy.

A statement issued by the police here said that the search operation at Samboora near the highway town of Pampore was launched on specific input about the presence of militant commander and two others in a private house.




Chhota Noora was granted 21-days parole in 2015, but he jumped the parole and never returned to jail.

It added that Noor Trali went underground in July 2017 after the killing of three JeM militants during an encounter in Aripal area and "soon became the key man of JeM responsible for coordinating and organising attacks at different places". In fact, a Delhi court in 2011 termed Tantray and four other JeM cadres "merchants of death and destruction" while awarding them life sentence in this case. A complete shutdown was observed in Tral area on Tuesday, and Internet and railway services were suspended in South Kashmir.

Defence spokesperson Rajesh Kalia told The Indian Express that Tantray was on the Army's "wanted list" also. His funeral was attended by many, including some militants who offered a gun salute.
