Three terrorists, suspected to have links with militant outfit Lashker-e-Toiba, were gunned down in a police encounter in Mumbai on Saturday.

Two of them have been identified as Abul Sultan and Anwar Ali while the identity of the third one is yet to be established, police said.

The trio was killed by Crime Intelligence unit (CIU) of Mumbai Police in an exchange of fire outside Mahananda Dairy on estern Express Highway at Goregaon in northwest Mumbai around 1200 hrs.

On a tip-off that the ultras were to assemble at Goregaon to plan a terrorist attack, police laid a trap and asked them to surrender. However, they fired at the police, who retaliated, killing them.

According to intelligence gathered by police, the terrorists were suspected to be involved in the recent massacre of Kashmiri pandits at Nadimarg in Jammu and Kashmir.
