Sopore: Thousands of people on late Tuesday assembled to attend the funeral prayers and burial of slain militant Abdul Qayoom Najar who was killed on Monday while infiltrating into Kashmir from Lachipora Uri. It was a major success for the security forces as Najar was wanted for his alleged involvement in more than 50 killings, including that of four policemen in Hygam area of Sopore, in the past 17 years, Baramulla Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Imtiyaz Hussain said.
In the summer of 2015, Najar had formed Lashkar-e-Islam (LeI) outfit after differences cropped up between Hizbul commanders in PoK and him.
"He was now tasked with reviving the outfit in Kashmir in the wake of elimination of top militants", he said. His return was also necessitated because of wiping out of HM from North Kashmir.
He was also involved in attacks on telecommunications towers across the valley in 2015, the SSP said.
Qayoom was a resident of Mumkak area of Sopore in northern part of Kashmir.
Additional security forces and state police personnel had been deployed in the town to prevent any law and order problem.
Although police claims that Najar was linked with militants since 1999, his family members and friends told Firstpost that he joined militants after him and his family were subjected to harassment at the hands of police over a neighborhood dispute in which Najar was accused of assaulting a female.
He rose through the ranks of terrorists after 2003 following the killing of the then Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Commander Abdul Majid Dar, who had entered into a dialogue process with the Government of India. After his release, Qayoom allegedly reentered militancy and was an active terrorist.
"Security agencies kept on receiving regular inputs about the infiltration of militants along the LoC in Uri. It is a big relief for us", Hussain said.
