The gunfight started on Monday evening after forces launched a cordon and search operation in the area.

In the ensuing encounter, Tantray was killed whereas there was no information about the presence of the second militant, it said.


A police spokesman in a statement said that a body has been recovered from along with arms and ammunition. His elimination is a setback to the JeM and a very good success for the security forces.

Tantray hailed from Tral area of south Kashmir and his death is being seen as a blow to the terror group as he was the key man in reviving the JeM in south and central Kashmir. He was serving his sentence at the Central Jail in Srinagar until he jumped his parole in 2015.

The 47-year-old was wanted in various terror incidents earlier this year, including a suicide attack at the Border Security Force camp at Srinagar airport, and had become an irritant for the security forces.
