Jammu and Kashmir's Director General of Police, Shesh Paul Vaid, confirmed Abu Ismail's killing.

Abu Ismail, the commander of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), was killed along with one more terrorist in an encounter with the security forces in the Nowgam region of Jammu and Kashmir.

Incidentally, while social media was abuzz about Islam's anointment to the senior LeT post, intelligence operatives said there were no independent inputs with them yet to confirm this. "Ismail had unleashed terror and the information about his presence was specific and developed by police", Khan said.

Taking cognizance of a video in which soldiers are seen disrespecting the bodies of militants killed in an encounter, the army said it would take suitable action.

Ismail was said to be behind the attack on a bus carrying pilgrims returning from the Amarnath shrine that claimed eight lives and injured at least a dozen people in July this year.

Ismail was believed to be the mastermind behind the terror attack. "This operation is a result of people's prayers".

Both militants were Pakistani nationals and were killed in a joint operation of army and J&K police on Thursday evening.
