"Abu Mosa, a divisional commander of the LeT outfit, was killed in the shootout, while a soldier was injured in the operation."
Srinagar, July 9 - A top foreign guerrilla of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) outfit was Wednesday killed in a gunfight with security forces in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir in which a soldier was also injured, police said.

Acting on specific information about the presence of some militants at Shah Mohalla Hamla Pati (Zachaldara) village in Kupwara district, a joint team of the army's 21 Rashtriya Rifles and Special Operations Group cordoned off the village, a senior police officer told IANS.

The militants hiding in the village opened fire at the security forces, who retaliated.

Abu Mosa, a divisional commander of the LeT outfit, was killed in the shootout, while a soldier was injured in the operation.

Abu Mosa was a Pakistani national who was active in Handwara, Rajwara and Ramhall belt since 2012, the police officer said.
