The security forces today killed a top commander of militant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad at Chatloora village in Baramulla district.

The militant, identified as Shoaib alias Yasir Tunda, was the divisional commander of the outfit and was carrying a reward of Rs 10 lakh.

Inspector General of Police SM Sahai said Yasir’s killing was a major achievement.

“Shoaib, a Pakistani, infiltrated into Kashmir in 2002 and was operating in and around Rafiabad, Kupwara and Sopore under various names – Showket, Shazeb, Yasir. His killing is a major achievement for the police and security forces,” Sahai told the Tribune.

A police officer in north Kashmir said the militant was involved in the killing of PDP zonal president Ghulam Mohammad Mir in 2008 and National Conference worker Ghulam Mohidin Bhat in Rafiabad, besides other subversive activities.
“Yasir took over the command of the JeM in north Kashmir in March 2011 after the death of chief commander of the group Sajjad Afghani, alias Qari Hammad, who was killed along with his bodyguard in an encounter at Foreshore Road on the outskirts of the city,” he added.

The JeM outfit is headed by Moulana Masood Azhar, who was released in exchange of passengers of the hijacked Indian Airlines plane in 1999.

Giving details of the encounter, the police said Shoaib was hiding in the house of Ali Mohammad Bhat. He fired at the Special Operation Group of the J&K police and men of the Army’s 22 Rashtriya Rifles when they went to search the house of Ali Mohammad Bhat last midnight. The police and the Army personnel retaliated and shot him dead inside the cupboard he was hiding in.

Sub Inspector Dilraj Singh of the police’s Special Operations Group, Bhat’s son Aashiq Hussain and a relative of the Bhats were wounded in the incident.
The police claimed to have recovered a Kalashnikov rifle, a pistol and ammunition from the slain militant.

This is the second killing of a top militant commander in Chatloora since 2008, when Hafiz Nasir, chief operational commander of Lashker-e-Toiba, was killed in a shootout that also claimed life of Lt Col M S Kadam.
