Srinagar, May 7 (IBNS): After the terror attack on a police party in Kulgam area of south Kashmir claimed lives of four including policemen and civilians, the security forces also killed a terrorist in retaliatory fire.

"One militant died during firing and we have recovered hand grenade from his possession," said a police official.

The terrorist has been identified as Fayaz Ahmad Aishwar, who supposedly belong to Lashkar.

According to police said he was involved in the Udhampur attack in 2015 and that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) had announced a reward of Rs. 2 lakh on him.

On Saturday, terrorists attacked police vehicle in Mir Bazaar area of Kulgam district in South Kashmir resulting in the death of two policemen and two civilians including a non local labourer.

During exchange of fire, three other policemen were also injured.

They later shifted to a hospital for treatment in a critical condition.

“A combing operation was launched immediately to track them down,” the police said.

This comes after Pakistani forces killed and mutilated two Indian soldiers in J&K's Udhampur along the Line of Control.
