SRINAGAR: Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) on Wednesday paid tributes to Naveed Jatt and his associate who were killed in a gunfight with the government forces in Chattergam area of central Kashmir’s Budgam district.

“Both the warriors were true sons of soil who fought the invaders and their lackeys to the last breath of their life,” LeT spokesperson, Dr Abdullah Ghaznawi said in a statement. Dr Ghaznawi thanked Kashmiri people for “feeding and taking care of these warriors like their own sons”.

“We also request the Kashmiri people not to listen to the propaganda and lies of Indian state and their lackeys in Kashmir. Their only intention is to defame and discredit these warriors who have left all the comforts of their life and chosen a path of sacrifice for freedom,” he said.

“Indian state has been exposed time and again when it killed innocent tourists, members of minority communities and even its own military officers and then conveniently put the blame on indigenous Kashmiri fighters only to defame us and our struggle, but every time its concocted stories were exposed in front of the whole world,” Dr Ghaznawi said.
