In a major success, security forces on Friday killed a top Lashkar-e-Toiba militant Muzaffar Naikoo alias Muzz Moulvi in an encounter on the outskirts of the city. Security forces launched an operation in Gulzarpora locality of Mochuwa late last night following information about presence of a top militant in the area, a police official said. As the security forces were laying cordon around the locality, the militant hurled a grenade in a bid to escape but his attempt was thwarted.
