JeM’s ‘chief architect’ in J-K Chhota Noora killed in encounter

A Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist was killed in the encounter by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Tuesday, reports said.

Police in Srinagar say government forces have killed the commander of a Pakistan-based militant group in Indian-administered Kashmir.

"'When a search party went near the suspect's house, hiding militants opened indiscriminate fire and security forces returned the fire", the police spokesperson said. The encounter continued till early morning, and one JeM cadre was identified as Noor Mohammad Tantray.

"The accused was one of the chief architects of the BSF camp attack near Srinagar airport this year".

Tantray, 47, who was only three feet tall, was reported to be behind the recent attacks in the Valley.

Besides Uri attack, Chota Noora was allegedly involved in a grenade attack on a minister's cavalcade in Tral, in September this year.

Trump signs biggest tax overhaul into law
Trump's comments to his friends also contradict what the White House suggests: the middle class would benefit from the tax cut. In that same year, 80 percent of the bill's benefits would be going to the top 1 percent of taxpayers.

The police sources said Tantray masterminded several attacks, including suicide strikes. There was input about presence of 2/3 militants near NHW planning to attack convoy.

Tantray's death comes as a success to the forces in the valley as he acted as a catalyst in the revival of JeM in South Kashmir since 2015.

Noor, who is a convict in a case, was lodged in a Delhi jail for some time in 2003. Noor was later sentenced to life imprisonment by POTA court in 2011.

Jammu and Kashmir police chief Shesh Paul Vaid said that there were inputs that the militants were present and planning to attack a convoy on the National Highway.

In the ensuing encounter, Tantray was killed whereas there was no information about the presence of the second militant, it said.

Local media said that Tantray had become "a headache" for police after he jumped parole and took control of JeM south and central Kashmir. Tantray has been a key commander in leading one of the wings of the locally powerful extremist organisation, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM).
