Kashmir's Most Wanted Terrorist Zakir Musa Killed In Encounter

Zakir Rashid aka Zakir Musa, Burhan Wani’s most high-profile partner in crime, escaped the dragnet of the security forces more than once. Eventually, time catches up. The only information I gave my officers when there were operational failures in Jammu and Kashmir was this: patience finally pays.

Musa could not keep away from Tral. An alert intelligence source undoubtedly spotted him and signaled the Jammu and Kashmir Police’s (JKP) Special Operations Group (SOG). The army unit which executes all operations in Tral — 42 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) — was just a whistle away. It didn't take much time to place a close cordon around the house at Dadsara, but the encounter went on for a long time. Musa refused to lay down of arms and even managed a brief escape to the adjoining orchards where he finally met his end.
