March 11, 2019: The mastermind of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel is believed to have been killed in an encounter in the Tral area of South Kashmir, officials said Monday.

The encounter in Pinglish area of Tral in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district lasted past midnight in which Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist Mudasir Ahmed Khan alias ‘Mohd Bhai’ was among the three militants killed, the officials said. 

The bodies of the three militants are charred beyond recognition and efforts are on to establish their identity, they said. 

The security forces launched a cordon and search operation in Pinglish after receiving specific intelligence input about the presence of militants in the area. 

The operation turned into an encounter after the militants opened fire at the search party of the forces who retaliated. 

Lesser-known JeM terrorist Khan has been identified as the brains behind the audacious terror strike in Pulwama that left 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel dead on February 14, officials said on Sunday. 

Piecing together evidence gathered so far, security officials said that 23-year-old Khan, an electrician with a graduate degree and a resident of Pulwama, arranged the vehicle and explosives used in the terror strike.
