Security forces on Tuesday said they have killed terrorist Abdul Qayoom Najar, one of the most wanted in the valley, in an encounter in Uri district of Jammu and Kashmir.

"The HM has nearly been wiped out from north Kashmir", Hussain claimed.

He said Najar briefly fell out with HM/Hurriyat leadership in 2015 when he orchestrated multiple attacks on mobile towers in Sopore.




Najar was sent by the United Jehad Council's commander Syed Salahudin to revive the Hizbul Mujahideen, whose commanders of north Kashmir Pervaiz Wani and Yasin Yatoo were killed recently. "He was responsible for killing several policemen and civilians", deputy inspector general of police Nitish Kumar said. "Armed intruders retreated", an Indian Army official said.

Asked how he survived for this long, the officer said, "Najar would keep on changing his appearance and would use wigs and move around meekly. Because killing him would have been a big problem as he was already heading a huge network in north Kashmir", he said. His group included terrorists from Pattan, Baramulla and Handwara in north Kashmir. After his release, he worked in an electrical shop for a few years and rejoined militancy in 1995. He was recalled to base camp in Muzaffarabad, POK to sort out the differences.

The unprovoked and indiscriminate firing by Pakistan Army in Kashmir has effectively broken down the almost fifteen-year-old Ceasefire Agreement (CFA), the two countries agreed to in 2003.
