On Wednesday, top Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Naveed Jatt, wanted for the assassination of Kashmiri journalist Shujaat Bukhari, was killed in an encounter with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Budgam district. The authorities snapped Internet services in Budgam as a precautionary measure while train services were suspended across Kashmir.
Journalist Shujaat Bukhari was shot dead outside his office at Press Enclave in Srinagar on June 14. The Jammu and Kashmir Police had later revealed that the plot to kill Bukhari was hatched in Pakistan and that the LeT carried out the crime.
Lashkar-e-Taiba militant Naveed Jatt was active in south Kashmir, the hotbed of militancy, and involved in multiple attacks between 2013-2014 before he escaped from Srinagar's SMHS hospital on February 6. Two policemen were killed in the hospital shootout.
Jatt was last seen offering a gun salute to Waqar Ahmad Sheikh at his funeral in Shopian's Malikgund village.
Earlier, another Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist accused of assassinating senior Kashmiri journalist Shujaat Bukhari - Azad Ahmad Malik - was shot down in Anantnag encounter.
