Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir: The Indian Army has released a list of top 12 Jammu and Kashmir militants it aims to “go after”. The  Army made the names of the militants public on Tuesday. 

After the last week’s success of security forces in gunning down the Hizbul commander Sabzar Bhatt, along with another militant at Soimoh village in Tral of Pulwama district, about 36 km from Srinagar, this has been the second major step in bringing down the militants.

In another operation, the army foiled a major infiltration bid by eliminating six militants in the Rampur sector.

According to media, the militants listed by the India Army are reported to be locals recruited recently and predominantly operating in South Kashmir.
