Wanted terrorist Zakir Musa killed in encounter with security forces, protests and clashes erupt in Kashmir valley

Internet services have been scrapped and schools and colleges have been closed tomorrow

In an exchange of fire that broke out between the security forces and terrorists at Dadsar village in Tral in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, wanted terrorist Zakir Musa has reportedly been killed.

Musa, who was the Chief of the terrorist group Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, a cell of terrorist organisation Al-Qaeda, was reportedly trapped in the encounter in Tral. The area of Dadsara village was cordoned off by a joint team of the Army’s 42 Rashtriya Rifles, SOG and the CRPF late in the evening. There were inputs regarding the presence of the terrorist commander Musa in the region. According to the information given by a police officer, the area was cordoned off following these inputs.

A police officer said that the terrorist was given an opportunity to surrender by the joint team but he opened fire at the security forces. This led to a gunfight which resulted in his encounter. Internet services have reportedly been suspended in most parts of South Kashmir and are reported to be suspended in the entire valley soon. All the educational institutions will reportedly remain shut in the valley tomorrow as per government directions to avoid possible law and order crisis.
