According to reports, two terrorists killed on the LoC in the Uri sector of Baramulla district on Wednesday were Pakistani nationals, and their identities were established as Bashir Ahmad Malik and Ahmad Gani Sheikh.

Ahmad Gani Sheikh was the deputy launching commander who was assisting Bashir Ahmad Malik.
Malik has been actively involved in terrorism for the last three decades.
