The Indian security forces have killed a top militant commander, Noor Mohammad Tantray in the restive Kashmir valley during an overnight raid, which ended on Tuesday (26 December) morning.

Two of his accomplices, believed to be foreign terrorists, managed to escape under the cover of darkness when the encounter broke out at Samboora village in Pulwama district in South Kashmir, they said, adding that the two would be tracked down soon. "In the ensuing encounter, Tantray was killed whereas there was no information about the presence of the second militant", it said.

Eight security personnel and three militants were killed in that attack.
