Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) on Sunday paid tribute to the two militants killed in an encounter in Bandipora on Thursday.

A spokesperson of LeT Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi in a statement issued to GNS quoted Shah as saying, “The Indian army has crossed all limits. The use of chemical weapons and destroying the houses is strongly condemnable. It is the worst kind of human rights violation. It was due to the chemical weapons that the bodies of both the martyrs were completely destroyed.”

“Not only this, but the army further damaged the bodies apart with weapons, which is unquestionably the worst example of war criminality,” Mehmood Shah said.

The LeT chief sought intervention of the international organisations towards “such clear human rights exploitations” by India.

He also added that those resigning from police are welcome. “They must keep their resignation letters with them as proof,” he said.
