After the video went viral on social media sites, the Indian Army has assured “suitable action”.

Security forces killed the top Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist Abu Ismail along with his accomplices in an encounter in Nowgam just outside the borders of Srinagar city.

The police shared the details of the operation saying that the security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Aarigam (Nowgam) village in the outskirts of Srinagar city on Thursday after information of the militants' presence in the region.

"As the security forces tightened the cordon, the hiding militants opened fire at the surrounding security forces triggering an encounter," the police said.

According to the police, top LeT militant Abu Qasim and Chota Qasim were pakistani Pakistani nationals who orchestrated the Amarnath terror attack in July earlier this year.
