A video showing troopers disrespecting the bodies of slain Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) commander Abu Ismail and his associate has gone viral on social media sites.

On July 10, militants had attacked a bus carrying Amarnath pilgrims near Batingoo Anantnag, leaving eight passengers dead and 19 injured, triggering outrage across the country.

It was reported that a manhunt had been launched to hunt down Ismail, a Pakistani national, following the attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in July. It is a great success for the security forces.

"The special thing about this operation is that it was based on wishes of people".

On 11 September, in a heavily militancy infested area of Kulgam, two militants were killed while another one surrendered. In a recent video message, Musa said that Pakistan betrayed the militants and even got many of them killed while shutting down the training camps after the U.S. attacked Afghanistan in 2001.

"Amarnath Yatra (pilgrimage) attack mastermind terrorist Abu Ismael killed in an encounter at Aarigam, Nowgam", Indian army spokesman Aman Anand told AFP via text message.

"Abu Ismail was killed in a brief gunfight at Nowgam along with his aide".

Shooting at a high school in Washington state near Spokane
One of those present was junior, Christina, who tweeted a picture from inside the school at the time of the gunfire. This is a awful day for the students, parents, teachers, administrators and the rest of that close-knit community.

He was designated as the operation commander by the LeT after Abu Dujana joined the Kashmir chapter of Zakir Musa's al-Qaida some months ago.

It is believed Ismail was helped by members of another militant group Hizbul Mujahideen, which provided logistics during the attack, a report by the Financial Express said.

The security forces had recently released a list of Grade A++ terrorists in the Valley. "Priority is to eliminate the militant leadership", said Khan.

Abu Ismail was involved in 15 FIRs, the IGP said. It now has no known faces apart from local boy Zeenat-ul-Islam left in the group.

Ismail according to police was among the most wanted militants active in the restive region. "We are looking at serious deficiencies in the LeT leadership which should give us more opportunities", he said.

"Militant leadership is important to be neutralised".
