Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday congratulated the security forces for killing top Hizbul Mujahideen commander Riyaz Naikoo along with his accomplice in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir earlier in the day.
Gandhi tweeted: "I congratulate our security forces for bringing the terrorist, Riyaz Naikoo, to justice. The killing of innocent people by terrorists must never go unpunished."
Naikoo, Kashmir's most-wanted terrorist, was trapped late on Tuesday in his native Beighpora village in Pulwama district. He and his associate were killed in an encounter with security forces early on Wednesday.
