"The divisional commander of JeM, Noor Mohammad Tantray alias Noor Trali, was killed in a gun battle with security forces in Samboora area of Pulwama", the police said in a statement, according to PTI.

He said the gunfight had erupted after the Army's 50 Rashtriya Rifles, J&K police's counterinsurgency Special Operations Group (SOG) and RPF laid a siege to Samboora on Monday night following inputs about the presence of three militants in area.

"'When a search party went near the suspect's house, hiding militants opened indiscriminate fire and security forces returned the fire", the police spokesperson said.

In occupied Kashmir, a complete shutdown was observed on the second consecutive day, today, in Tral and Aripal areas of south Kashmir's Pulwama district to mourn the killing of Noor Mohammed Tantray.

Security forces further tightened the Cordon in the village, they said adding exchange of fire continued till 0400 hrs on Tuesday. He was only three feet tall and had rejoined militancy after jumping parole.

Besides Uri attack, Chota Noora was allegedly involved in a grenade attack on a minister's cavalcade in Tral, in September this year.

Muneer Khan, the Chief of Kashmir Police said, "He identified targets and planned the attacks".

Police said Tantray was earlier a close aide of Jaish commander Ghazi Baba, who masterminded the 2001 attack on Parliament.

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.

Tantray was arrested in Delhi in 2003 and sentenced to life by a Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) court in 2011.

"He was shifted from Tihar jail to Srinagar Central Jail some years back to face trial in another case but was eventually released on parole in 2015".

Afting jumping the parole, he joined JeM and has been a major perpetrator in several attacks on the forces in Kashmir.
