  • Top Lashkar terrorist Abu Dujana killed in encounter with security forces in J&K

Moreover, he was category "A" militant and carried a reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head, a police official told PTI.

Abu was reportedly killed and fierce encounter was going on. In an encounter that broke out on Tuesday morning, the security forces also killed Arif Lilhaari another top Lashkar terrorist. An encounter had broken out between the security forces and security forces in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir.

Mr Khan described the rebel commander's death as "good riddance to a nuisance" and said counterinsurgency operations would continue despite civilian protests. This triggered a heavy gunfight in which two militants were killed.

The house where militant commander Abu Dujana and his associate were holed up goes up in flames.

Significantly, after the news of terrorists being hidden, the casino ie Corden And Search Operation has been launched here.

The significance of Dujana's killing can be assessed from the fact that he was wanted in many militancy-related attacks on security forces and political workers in south Kashmir. "He therefore, took the weapon to fight", one of his neighbours said.

Infiltration bid in 2016 where, 11 attempts were made and 18 terrorists were killed in that while in 2017, 19 terrorist were successful and 42 were killed in the bid.




Dujana was a very close associate of Abdul Rehman alias Abu Qasim, the spokesman said adding that both were involved in an attack on a BSF convoy in Udhampur a year ago.

Soon after the killing, the Indian government shut down all internet services in the region.

Abu Dujana, one of the top Islamist commanders in Kashmir, was killed by the Indian security forces during a raid in the early hours on Tuesday, 1 August.

A nurse, Gulzara Akhter, and a student were injured when the security forces opened fire on protesters outside the district hospital, witnesses and hospital sources said.

Director General of police S.P. Vaid, refused to give further details about the encounter, saying that the operation is ongoing.

He also said the bodies had been charred. Kashmir has been witnessing stone-pelting incidents during anti-terror operations following which the forces have warned them that they would be forced use extreme measures to deal with them.
