A top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Abu Dujana killed

Pulwama (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], 01 August, (

A top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Abu Dujana, is among the two gunmen shot dead by the Indian security forces in a fierce encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s southern Pulwama district on Tuesday.

The officials called Dujana’s killing a “huge achievement” of the Jammu and Kashmir police and the security forces combating a three-decade old militancy in the State.

Confirming the news, the Jammu and Kashmir Police Twitter said, "LET chief commander Abu Dujana of Pakistan along with his accomplice killed in Hakripora Pulwama. Huge achievement for police & SF."

Dujana was one of the most wanted terrorists and carried over Rs. 15 lakh bounty on his head.

Earlier in July, Indian Army released a list of 12 most-wanted terrorists operating in the Kashmir Valley and Dujana was in that list.

The Indian Army has managed to kill more than 95 terrorists in the Valley in 2017, including some top level commanders, but Dujana is one militant that has managed to flee on multiple occasions.

Soon after the word about Dujana’s killing spread, irate youth took to the streets in many parts of the Valley including Pulwama and Srinagar and soon clashed with the security forces. The police and other security forces fired their rifles, pellet shotguns and teargas canisters to quell the stone-pelting mobs, the witnesses said.

One youth identified as Firdous Ahmed, a resident of Pulwama’s Begumpora, Kakapora, was killed when hit by a bullet in the chest during intense protests in the area, the police and hospital sources said.
