The search operation near the encounter site in Pulwama district of south Kashmir concluded on Friday (August 7) as the accomplices of the slain Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militant managed to escape. “The operation at Astan Mohalla in Kakapora area of Pulwama has been called off as no further recoveries were affected from the debris at the encounter site,” a police official said. LeT militant Talib Hussain Shah alias Umar was killed in the gunbattle yesterday but security forces were looking for two more of his accomplices. The official said a tight cordon around the area had been maintained overnight to prevent the militants from escaping if they were still inside the cordoned area. A police spokesman said Shah was involved in a number of militancy-related activities.
