Security forces gun down Jaish militant in south Jammu & Kashmir
Terming the killing of 47-year-old Tantray as a "significant development", the police said the terrorist was wanted in various terror incidents earlier this year, including a suicide attack at the BSF camp at Srinagar airport, and had become an irritant for the security forces.
Police said they received a tip-off Monday night about the presence of two to three militants in Samboora in south Kashmir's Awantipora district.
Subsequently, he jumped parole and rejoined the JeM, becoming one of its top commanders. "In July, after the Aripal encounter in which three JeM terrorists were killed, Tantray went underground and soon became the Jaish's key man in coordinating and organising attacks at different places", said a senior police officer.
The body of Tantray, who was four feet two inches tall, was recovered along with one weapon this morning from the rubbles of the house where the terrorists were hiding. There was input about the presence of 2/3 militants near NHW planning to attack a convoy. Noor was later sentenced to life imprisonment by POTA court in 2011.
This information was developed further and it was in this course that we came to know of the presence of a most wanted JeM militant, who was the mastermind of nearly all attacks carried out by JeM, was hiding in Samboora.
Security forces further tightened the Cordon in the village, they said adding exchange of fire continued till 0400 hrs on Tuesday.

All trains between Banihal-Srinagar have been suspended in south Kashmir.
Tantray's death is seen as a big blow for the JeM.
Defence spokesperson Rajesh Kalia told The Indian Express that Tantray was on the Army's "wanted list" also.
According to reports, later, the dead body of Jaish-e-Mohammed outfit's divisional commander Noor Mohammad of Tral town, who was believed to be behind several recent attacks in the valley, was recovered. His funeral was attended by many, including some militants who offered a gun salute.
