A terrorist of the Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen was killed in a gunfight with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district, police said on Saturday.

Tariq Anwar alias Azhar was killed late on Friday in the mountainous area of Nava Pachi in Kishtwar, about 250 km north east of Jammu.

"The terrorist's hideout was raided by a joint party of the Indian Army and the state police and after a brief gunfight, the terrorist who ranked high in the hierarchy of the militant outfit was killed," a police spokesman said.

Azhar was involved in various crimes, ranging from killings to extortions in the area.
