Terrorist slain in Pulwama encounter was longest-surviving Lashkar commander: DGP

Top Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Aijaz Ahmed Reshi, who was killed along with an aide in an anti-terror operation in Pulwama’s Samboora area late Sunday, was one of the longest surviving commanders of the outfit, J&K DGP Dilbagh Singh said on Monday. Lashkar’s main recruiter, Reshi was involved in numerous attacks on security forces, inflicting heavy casualties.

Reshi initially worked as an overground worker and had joined militancy even before Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, the poster boy of new-age militancy in J&K who was killed in an encounter in July 2016, DGP Singh told reporters at district police lines in Awantipora, Pulwama.
