New Delhi:

At least three terrorists, including self-styled Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Kashmir chief Qari Yasir, were gunned down, while one jawan was injured in an encounter between security forces and terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Tral on Saturday. The injured jawan was rushed to a nearby Army hospital.

The three Jaish terrorists were trapped at the site in the encounter. Another terrorist is suspected to be Burhan Sheikh, who was being trained to be a fidayeen.

Qari Yasir was a Pakistan-based terrorist. He was behind the killing of two members of the nomadic Gujjar community from a forested area in Pulwama district in August in 2019.

Abdul Qadeer Kohli of Rajauri district and Manzoor Ahmed of Khonmoh area of Srinagar were abducted by JeM terrorists from 'Dhok', a temporary shelter, from the forested area of Tral in Pulwama district on August 26 last year.

Later, bullet-riddled bodies of Kohli and Ahmed were recovered by a search and rescue party. Qari Yasir was the main mastermind behind this whole operation.
