NEW DELHI: Days before he was killed, Kashmiri militant leader Burhan Wani spoke to LeT chief Hafiz Sayeed, sought his 'blessings' and offered to put up a united front of LeT and his own Hizbul Mujahideen in their 'jehad' against India.

A release issued by CNN-News18 here on Friday said the TV news channel has accessed an audio tape of the conversation between Sayeed and Wani from the latter's Valley hideout.

The conversation between the two was intercepted by Indian intelligence agencies, it said.

In the tape, which the channel could not verify, Wani is heard requesting Sayeed to extend more support to Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants in the Kashmir valley in terms of arms, ammunition and money.

"You people are living in very difficult conditions. But you don't have to worry. Whatever you need just tell us, we are ready for every help. Will be ready for anything. You just have to tell us," Sayeed is heard telling Wani in the tape.

Wani tells Sayeed that "the enemy is almost defeated and we have to maintain this".

"We have to go all out on attacks and shouldn't lose this opportunity. For this, we need ammunition and support from the back. We should work together (Hizbul and Lashkar) for this," Wani is heard as saying.

Wani, 22, was the poster boy of Kashmiri militancy and his death in an encounter with security forces in July this year had set off a storm of protests in the Valley.
