A district commander of the Lashkar-e-Taeba (LeT) was killed Wednesday in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar forest area, police said.

On a tip off, security forces raided the hideout of Mohammad Ishaq in the forests of Kishtwar, about 230 km from here, and killed him after a gunfight of over an hour. The terrorist had been active in the area for the past five years, a police officer said.

"It was a great success as Ishaq was wanted in several cases," the police officer said without giving details.
