Who is Zakir Musa, one of the most dreaded militants in Kashmir?


On May 23, a joint operation by Indian Army’s 42 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) and a Special Operations Group (SOG) of the Jammu and Kashmir Police successfully eliminated one of the most-dreaded terrorists of the Valley.

Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind Chief Zakir Musa was holed up inside the house of a chemist in Dadsara village of Kashmir’s Tral region, when he died in an encounter with the forces. The owner of the house where he was hiding was sent in for negotiation.
