Hizbul Mujahideen district commander killed in encounter in Jammu and Kashmir

A newly appointed district commander of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist organization was killed in an encounter with security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam on Saturday, police said.

Acting on specific information regarding the presence of terrorists in south Kashmir’s Ashmuji area, security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation, a police spokesman said.

During the operation, as soon as the presence of terrorists was detected, they were given ample opportunities to surrender, instead they started firing indiscriminately on the search parties. Ensuring the safety of the civilians, the joint teams rescued them and shifted them to safer places. He said that the encounter took place in retaliatory firing.

He said that in the ensuing encounter, the newly appointed district commander of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM), Mudasir Wage, a resident of Malwan Kulgam, was killed and his body was recovered from the encounter site.

Police had said on Wednesday that HM District Commander Shakir Nazar was killed in an encounter in Pombe area of ​​Kulgam.

The spokesman said that as per police records, Wage was an ‘A+’ category terrorist and was active since 2018 and was included in the list of most wanted terrorists.

He was part of groups involved in several terror crimes, including attacks on security forces and civilian atrocities. The spokesman said that he was also involved in the murder of G Hasan Lone, a political activist in Devsar area of ​​Kulgam.

An INSAS rifle was recovered which is the same weapon that was snatched by terrorists during an attack on a bank vehicle in Pombe DH Pora in 2017.

Incriminating material, arms and ammunition including INSAS rifle were recovered from the encounter site. All the recovered materials have been taken in the case record for further investigation. The spokesperson said that the police have registered cases under relevant sections of the law and investigation has been started.
