Four other associates of Sajjad were killed in a two-day long operation after the army intercepted them while they were trying to sneak into this side from across the border in Uri sector.           

While three militants were killed yesterday, another was gunned down a day earlier, soon after security forces launched a search operation following specific information about presence of a group of militants.       

 Ahmed's capture comes about three weeks after Naved, a Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist from Pakistan, was nabbed after he and his associate attacked a BSF convoy in Chenani area of Udhampur district on August 5. His associate was killed in the encounter with BSF personnel.
