Farooq Abdullah congratulates armed forces for killing Abu Dujana

Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Patron Farooq Abdullah has congratulated the  forces for killing Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief commander Abu Dujana in Pulwawa district on Tuesday.

“I hope the security forces continue to do such good work, so that there is peace and calm in the state,” Abdullah said.

In a major breakthrough, Dujana of Pakistan along with his accomplice were killed in an encounter with security forces at Hakripora village in Pulwawa district.

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

Earlier, the armed forces personnel who killed Dujana came under heavy stone pelting from locals after various news channels reported that Dujana had been eliminated in the encounter.

On July 19, Dujana and two of his associates gave the slip to security forces in Pulwama district.

According to media reports, the trio exchanged fire with the armed forces and managed to flee from the spot.

Dujana was one of the most wanted militants 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 militants in the Valley in 2017, including some top level commanders, but Dujana is one militant that had managed to flee on multiple occasions.

Abu Dujana and Arif Lelhari, were killed in a gunfight with forces in Harkipora area of Pulwama district of south Kashmir earlier today. Reports said that people from all the surrounding villages of Pahoo, Kakapora and Newa marched towards Hakripora where a gunfight started early morning.

Government forces deployed in the area used live ammunition, pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters who pelted them with stones.
