Sopore: Thousands of people on late Tuesday assembled to attend the funeral prayers and burial of slain militant Abdul Qayoom Najar who was killed on Monday while infiltrating into Kashmir from Lachipora Uri.
A year before the killing of Hizbul Mujahadeen commander Burhan Wani blew a storm in Kashmir, Qayoom Najar, one of the most experienced militants operating in the Valley, had rattled the security agencies.
Army had earlier said that it had foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector of north Kashmir's Baramulla district.
Najar, alias Jasahib alias Ishfaq, a "commander" of the terror outfit, was coming to "take over" charge of its operations in the Valley, a police officer said. Najar was also reportedly unhappy as the Hizb high command had shifted focus to cadres operating in Tral instead of his cadres operating in north Kashmir.
He was also involved in attacks on telecommunications towers across the valley in 2015, the SSP said.
Giving details about the Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) militant commander's death, Hussain said Nazar was baptized into militancy in 1999 when he killed Abdul Majid Dar, the then estranged operational commander of the group.
Najar, a resident of Sopore township, was considered to be one of the most dreaded terrorists in Kashmir in the recent times. The police added that Najar was involved in the killings of dozens of civilians, police and other security personnel. "Armed intruders retreated", an Indian Army official said. However, he shot to prominence after carrying out a series of attacks against telecom operators in Sopore town, accusing them of spying on militants for security agencies and forcing them to shut down their operations.
"In order to sort out the differences, he was recalled back to base camp in Muzaffarabad in September 2015". Najar joined militancy when he was 16 and was arrested in 1992. So, had this gentleman made entry into north Kashmir, it would have been a problem for us. Baramulla SSP Imtiaz Hussain termed it a significant achievement for the forces as the 44-year-old had been an active militant for 18 years.
