Informed sources said that a Pakistani militant of Lashkar-e- Toiba, namely Sulaiman S-o Haakim-ud-din, got killed by troops of RR 14 Bn when he landed in an ambush at Shogbaba Sahib in Bandipore early in the morning today. Sources said that Police in Kupwara arrested one Riyaz Ahmed Khan S-o Sonaullah R-o Helmatpora, who had returned to his home from a training camp in PoK after 11 years.
