The other slain terrorist has been identified as Chota Qasim. However, the services were restored later in the evening.

A massive hunt was launched in south Kashmir to track down Ismail after the Amarnath attack.

Eight people were killed when terrorists fired at a bus carrying pilgrims from Gujarat and Maharashtra on July 10.

In Kashmir, while the forces are battling a wave of people pouring onto the encounter sites to disrupt anti-militancy operations, the over ground workers of the militants and their associates are providing information to the police leading to their killing.

"It was an exceptionally concise and fresh experience", said Munir Khan, the Kashmir police boss.

It was the worst attack on the Amarnath Yatra since 2000.

The Indian specialists said they had been surrounding Abu Ismail as of late. In a very brief and crisp encounter, both terrorists were killed. Ismail was an A++ category terrorist. "He was responsible for the attack on Amarnath Yatra". Referring to the informers, LeT chief said that they have no "idea that how many precious lives are getting lost like this". Meanwhile, protest against the National Investigation Agency raids in Kashmir was held in Maisuma locality of Srinagar soon after the culmination of Friday prayers.

"We are going after the militant leadership as eliminating the leadership is important".

Sources said after Ismail's killing, the LeT is likely to announce 28-year-old Zeenat-ul-Islam as its new operations chief in Kashmir.

GoC Victor Force, B S Raju, said it was an extremely important operation.

Ismail was involved in Amarnath attack earlier this year.

"We are looking at serious deficiencies in their (foreign militant) leadership which should give us more opportunities". Ismail was suspected of being involved in the killing of a young Sarpanch (village head) in Pampore in April besides being a member of a LeT module which carried out several bank robberies in recent months. "In Ismail's case, there is little we know, for he did not get to spend much time here", a top source in the security establishment told Kashmir Reader.

It is believed Ismail was helped by members of another militant group Hizbul Mujahideen, which provided logistics during the attack, a report by the Financial Express said.
