Srinagar, Sep 8: A Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant was killed while a policeman was injured in an exchange of fire after ultras attacked a police post in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said Saturday.

In the incident, the spokesman said, a policeman also sustained injuries and was evacuated to nearby hospital for medical attention where his condition is stated to be stable.

The injured was evacuated to the nearby hospital for medical attention where he succumbed to injuries, the official said. Police have registered a case in this regard and investigation in the instant matter has been initiated, he said.
However, a militant, apparently belonging to Islamic State in Jammu and Kashmir (IS-JK), was shot dead by unidentified gunmen here in the summer capital on Saturday, police said.
"An Individual was today killed when he was fired upon in Hazratbal area of Srinagar district. A pistol was also recovered from the spot. Consequently he was identified as AsifNazir Dar, a resident of Panzgam area of Awantipora (in south Kashmir's Pulwama district)," a police spokesman said.
He said the Dar was active since January 2017.
"Initially he had joined the proscribed terror outfit HM (HizbulMujahideen) but later got associated with the EisaFazili group of terrorists," the spokesman said.
He said police have registered a case in this regard and the investigation has been initiated.
The body has been handed over to the legal heirs after completion of legal formalities, the spokesman said.
EisaFazili alias EisaRoohullah al Kashmiri, a son of a Kashmir University employee, hailed from Soura area of the city here was killed in an encounter with security forces in Anantnag in March along with two other ultras.
Islamic State in Jammu and Kashmir (IS-JK) had owned up the three militants killed in the encounter and had earlier also taken responsibility for the attack on the police guard post at the residence of Hurriyat Conference leader FazalHaqQureshi in Soura area of the city which police believed was done by Fazili.
A policeman was killed in the attack and the assailants had fled with his service rifle.
Earlier, based on preliminary information, a police official had said that Dar belonged to 'AnsarGazwat-ul-Hind' - an affiliate of al-Qaeda in the valley led by ZakirMussa.
