Masood Azhar is the mastermind of the 2001 Parliament attack and the terror operation targeting the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot
In an alarming development for the Indian security forces, latest media reports suggest that Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar has sent Abdul Rasheed Ghazi, an Afghan war veteran, to Jammu and Kashmir to avenge the 2017 killing of his nephews. The terrorist is an IED expert, who has also been tasked to train young recruits. According to a report published on news portal The Print, Ghazi infiltrated from Pakistanoccupied Kashmir in the month of December last year. Usman and Talha Rasheed were gunned down by the security forces in an anti-terror operation in 2017. The report says that the dreaded terrorist has been hiding in south Kashmir’s Pulwama.
The development comes at a time when the security forces are continuing the anti-terror ‘Operation All Out’ in the troubled Valley. As many as 257 terrorists were killed across Jammu and Kashmir last year, Director General of Police Dilbagh Singh was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India.
