According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the military’s media wing, Rabbani, who had a Rs 5 million bounty on his head, was involved in numerous terrorist activities against the security forces as well as extortion and target killings of innocent civilians.

Two other terrorists were also injured in the encounter. Two Pakistan Army soldiers were also killed in the operation.

Security forces of Pakistan remain determined to wipe out the menace of terrorism, the army statement said.
