Security forces in Jammu and Kashmir achieved a significant victory on Tuesday, eliminating Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Basit Dar in an encounter within the Kulgam district. Dar, a resident of Redwani in Kulgam who had been missing since 2021, was reportedly involved with the terror outfit LeT and its frontal organization, The Resistance Front (TRF).

Officials confirmed Dar’s identity and revealed a Rs 10 lakh bounty placed on him by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with a registered case. Notably, crucial intel regarding Dar’s movement came from local residents, highlighting their cooperation with security forces in maintaining peace in the region.

Dar was considered a key figure behind a series of civilian killings that occurred in October, making his elimination a major setback for terrorist activities in the area.

This encounter signifies the continuous efforts of security forces to neutralize terrorist threats in Jammu and Kashmir. The cooperation of local residents is also a positive development, demonstrating their commitment to a peaceful environment.
