A top TRF (The Resistance Front) commander, said to be responsible for the killing of school principal Supinder Kour and her colleague Deepak Chand in the school premises at Eidgah, Srinagar, on October 7, was among three terrorists killed in an encounter in Rambagh in Srinagar district on Wednesday.

Director General of Police Dilbag Singh said TRF commander Mehran was among those killed in the encounter after an operation was launched on the basis of specific information about the presence of terrorists in Rambagh. As security forces approached the terrorists’ hideout, they came under fire. In the retaliatory fire, all three utras were killed.
