Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) on Friday paid tributes to the Pulwama militant, Omais Ahmad Sheikh, who was killed in an encounter in Bandipora forests on Thursday. In a statement to KNS, Mehmood Shah, spokesman of LeT, while paying glowing tributes to the militant, said “the youth in Kashmir have been making such kind of sacrifices for the dignity of Kashmir nation.” Shah said the Village Defence Committee (VDC) is the weapon of forces. “People should come forward to defeat such kind of persons. The issue is not of the mother and 4 year old son who were killed but it is an issue of freedom struggle,” he said.
