Top JeM terrorist killed in J&K

Jammu: In what police described as a “major blow’’ to the outfit, security forces killed one of the most wanted Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists in a gunbattle near Mendhar in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Sunday night. Police said the slain terrorist, Abdullah Sani, was wanted for the attack on the disputed Ram Temple in Ayodhya in July 2005.
Five terrorists and a civilian were killed in the foiled attack.
DGP Kuldeep Khoda said Sani had arranged the logistics for the attack. Khoda congratulated the security forces “for the major success’’.Sources said the gunbattle started after security forces raided a terrorist hide out following a tip off. An AK rifle and three magazines were recovered from Sani’s possession.
Poonch SSP Manmohan Singh said said Sani had sent terrorists from Mendhar for the Aydhoya attack. “Sani, operating under code name Sheikh, was also working as coordinator of various militant outfits in the border districts,’’ he said.
He was the key man in assigning tasks to militants besides motivating them and sending them across to Pakistan for the arms training.
Sani, a resident of Dabowal in Pakistan’s Punjab province, was the outfit’s Poonch district chief for the past 10 years. Sources said Sani had commanded a terrorist group in a protracted firefight with the security forces at Bhati Dhar in early January. He had managed to escape the security cordon.
Police said Sani, who infiltrated into J&K as a Lashkar-e-Taiba operative, in 1998, was trained in handling arms, explosives and IEDs, besides carrying out ambushes. He joined JeM in 2002.
