Top LeT militant killed in J&K

Government forces in Indian-administered Kashmir killed a top commander of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba militant group Wednesday during a fierce firefight, police said, triggering clashes with protestors.

LeT is the proscribed group India blames for the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai.

Pakistani national Naveed Jatt, the man killed yesterday, had dramatically escaped in February from a hospital in Srinagar where he was brought from jail for a check-up two years after his arrest.

Police also say that Jatt was part of the group of assailants who killed prominent journalist Shujaat Bukhari in a daring attack inside Srinagar's high security press area in June.
