Zulfikar Ali said that after being woken up by the grenade blast, he immediately called the local police station house officer for help and rescue.
“We have recovered two AK rifles, a few satellite phones and other documents from possession of the slain militants. The search operation was going on,” the ADGP said.
Among the slain militants is top Lashkar-e-Toiba commander Yousuf Kantroo, who was the longest surviving LeT militant and had been active since 2020.
