TRF commander among 3 militants killed in Srinagar
 
Srinagar, A "The Resistance Front" commander involved in a series of civilian killings in summer capital was among the three militants killed in an encounter with security forces here on Wednesday evening, police said.

They said the three militants including the TRF commander Mehran Yaseen Shalla were killed in the Rambagh area when they ignored the signal and drove away in a Santro car.

“Acting swiftly on specific input regarding movement of terrorists in Rambagh area of Srinagar, a small team from Srinagar Police signalled a suspected Santro vehicle to stop. However, the terrorists started firing indiscriminately on the police party from inside the car while trying to flee from the spot under the cover of firing. The fire was however effectively retaliated leading to gunfight. In the ensuing gunfight, three terrorists were killed,” a police spokesman said.

The police identified the three as militant commander of Lashkar-e-Toiba’s/ TRF Mehran Yaseen Shalla, a resident of Jamalatta Srinagar; Manzoor Ahmad Mir, resident of Babhar Pulwama and Arafat Ahmad Sheikh resident of Nikloora Pulwama.

Police said Mehran was involved in series of civilian killings in Srinagar including that of school principal Supinder Kaur and teacher Deepak Chand.

“As per police records, killed terrorist Mehran Yaseen was wanted by law for his involvement in several terror crime... He was involved in the killing of School Principal Supinder Kaur and teacher Deepak Chand of Government Higher Secondary School, Khankah Noorbagh Sangam on October 7,” a police spokesman said.

Police said he was involved in other killings in Srinagar and also a grenade attack at Barbarshah.

Mehran’s killing is a big setback to militants in Srinagar.

Police said other slain militant Arafat Ahmad was also involved in several terror crimes including killing of a non-local labour at Litter area of Pulwama on October 16.

Police said incriminating materials including arms and ammunition have been recovered from their possession.

A spontaneous shutdown and protests were reported from various areas of Srinagar. The eyewitnesses near the encounter site questioned the authenticity of the gunfight and alleged the three were pushed out of a car and later shot dead.
