Self styled commander of Hizbul Mujahideen Burhan Wani and two other terrorists were killed in an encounter in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.

The ongoing encounter with the security personnel started few hours back. Wani featured in videos circulated on Facebook and WhatsApp aimed at recruiting young Kashmiri men for terror.

Last month, Wani released a video warning of attacks on separate colonies for Sainiks and Kashmiri Pandits if they are set up in the Valley.

The major part of the video message, however, was directed at the Jammu and Kashmir Police warning them of more attacks.  Reportedly, there was a Rs. 10 lakh reward for information leading to his arrest.
