Authorities on Tuesday have made a decision to snap with immediate effect internet and voice service in Baramalla and Sopore in wake of the killing of Kashmir's longest surviving militant Qayoom Najjar near LoC in Uri area of north Kashmir's Baramulla district. A top police officer, who has been involved in the operation to track him, had earlier said that Najar didn't trust anyone and had even created fear among those who helped him.

Security officials said Qayoom was killed in a gunfight near Zorawar post of Lachipora Uri in the district. 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.

Another police official said that Najar was trying to infiltrate into Kashmir from Pakistan side.

He briefly fell out with the Hizbul and the Hurriyat leadership in 2015 when he orchestrated multiple attacks on mobile towers and killed some civilians affiliated with the Hurriyat. He was arrested in 1992 and later released.
