Most wanted Hizbul terrorist gunned down”

Baramulla (Jammu and Kashmir), Sep 26 (ANI): Lashkar e- Islam Chief Abdul Qayoom Najar was killed by security forces in an encounter in Uri earlier today.

One of the most wanted terrorist commanders, Abdul Qayoom Najar alias Jasahib alias Ishfaq, of Sopore, was active since 1999 and infamous for killing people who had rented out land to telecom companies for setting up the cell phone towers in north Kashmir in 2015.

"Najar was killed as security forces foiled an infiltration bid in Lachipora area near the LoC this morning", Baramulla Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Imtiyaz Hussain told PTI. Hizb's Pakistan-based leadership announced the ouster of Najar and he formed Lashkar-e-Islam. It also said that Najar, 41, was returning to the Valley from PoK to lead the Hizb, which suffered huge losses in the hands of security forces in recent weeks.

A complete shutdown was observed in Sopore, the hometown of Najar, where reports said normal life was completely disrupted.

His group, according to police, was responsible for attacks on mobile towers and civilian killings in Sopore and its adjacent villages in 2015. Sources said that all army camps around the area have been put on high alert.

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".

"The slain terrorist was responsible for several innocent killings and was also involved in dozens of terror activities, like attacking mobile dealers in Srinagar city", IG police (Kashmir range) Munir Khan said.

The SSP said that Najar was sent by United Jehad Council commander Syed Salahuddin to revive the Hizbul, whose north Kashmir commander Pervaiz Wani and operational chief Yasin Yatoo were killed recently. In an interview with Firstpost in 2015, Najar's father had said that it was a fight between a neighbour and his son which forced him to join militants again in 2005, after police tried to arrest him in the case filed by a women. That way it is a big relief to us and a big relief to all victims of his activities. He was an active militant for over 18 years.
