Long surviving Kashmiri terrorist killed at LoC

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.

Indian forces have finally eliminated the longest surviving terrorist of Kashmir - Qayoom Najar. He used to change his appearances to escape security agencies.

He had gone to Pakistan after he agreed to truce with Hizbul in 2015-16. After his release, Qayoom allegedly reentered militancy and was an active terrorist.

Salahuddin blamed Najar for murdering innocent persons and indulging in character assassination of Hurriyat leaders and attacks on the telecommunication set-up in the Valley.

"This is one of the issues of the discord between Hizb leadership and Najar".

At that time hitherto, unknown Lashkar- e-Islam posters surfaced in the town considered as the support base of Geelani. "As they were challenged, militants opened fire triggering a gunfight".
