Security forces killed three Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists in Magam area of north Kashmir's Handwara district on Tuesday morning, SP Vaid, director general of police, Jammu and Kashmir, has confirmed.

Army's Srinagar based defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia while confirming the killing of soldier and injury to two others said that the operation in the area is going on. His elder brother Musaib was killed in an encounter in the Hajin area of Bandipora district in January this year. It was a joint operation of CRPF Police and Army.

Lakhvi is a top leader of the LeT and now serves as its "supreme commander" of operations in Jammu and Kashmir. One Garud commando of the Indian Air Force was also killed and a civilian injured during the encounter.
