Long surviving Kashmiri terrorist killed at LoC

Abdul Qayoom Najar killed by security forces in Uri

Lashkar Islam Chief Qayoom Najar, most wanted terrorist commander, was killed on Tuesday morning while infiltrating into Kashmir Valley from Lachipora area near Line of Control in Baramulla district.

Najar, 39, who had been an active part of terror operations since 1999, was killed near Zorawar Post of Lachiproa in Uri. Qayoom was a resident of Sopore area of Baramulla district and was one of the longest surviving Kashmiri terrorist commanders carrying a bounty of Rs 10 lakh. He also carries a reward of Rs 10, 00,000 on his head.

SSP further said, "Najar had joined the militancy at the age of 18".

He was heading Lashkar-e-Islam, a breakaway faction of the Hizbul Mujahideen.




He would change his appearance and gave tough time to police. He was arrested in 1992 but later released. He was killed while he was returning from Pakistan. "Najar joined the militant ranks again after being released in 1995".

Najar was expelled by Hizbul chief Syed Salahuddin blaming him in playing a key role in murdering innocent persons and indulging in character assassination of Hurriyat leaders and attacks on the telecommunication set-up in the Valley. "There were other problems as well", he said.

A committed member of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, for more than 12 years, he rose to the position of operational chief of the outfit, before he quit and formed Lashkar-e-Islam. Officials say that Najar was also unhappy as the Hizbul high command had shifted their focus to the boys operating in Tral instead of his cadres. "As they were challenged, militants opened fire triggering a gunfight".
