Early Times Report

Jammu, July 31: The killing of Abu Saifullah alias “Lambu” is rightly described as the biggest success for security forces in the year 2021.
Although nearly 90 terrorists have been killed this year, today’s encounter has been described as the biggest strike of this year.
The mastermind of the Pulwama terror attack Abu Saifullah alias ‘Lamboo’, a self-styled commander of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) outfit was killed in an encounter in South Kashmir’s Dachigarm forest area.
He along with another terrorist was killed in the encounter- which lasted for not more than five minutes and was completed without any collateral damage.
The killed terrorist was the nephew of the chief of JeM, Masood Azhar, who was designated as a global terrorist was the United Nations in May 2019.
‘Lamboo’ a resident of Pakistan’s Punjab province had reportedly infiltrated Kashmir Valley from the Shakargarh area of Pakistan in the year 2017, to coordinate terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to police on a specific input regarding the presence of terrorists in the forest area of Namibian and Marsar, the general area of Dachigam forest, a joint cordon, and search operation was launched by Awantipora Police and Army.
During the search operation, the hiding terrorists fired on the joint search party, which was retaliated, leading to the encounter. In the ensuing encounter, two terrorists were killed and one of them was identified as ‘dreaded and most wanted’ Pakistani terrorist Saifullah alias Mohammad Ismail Alvi alias Lamboo alias Adnan of Jash-e-Mohammad. Identify of the second terrorist has been established as Sameer Dar.
Abu Saifullah chief of JeM Kashmir was the mastermind of the 2019 Pulwama terror attack. He was among 19 terrorists identified by the investigating agencies for the 2019 attack.
“The importance of killing Saifullah alias Lamboo is two-fold. It brings closure to February 2019 Pulwama incident. He was one of the masterminds for having trained a local, Adil, who blew himself up in an IED attack”, said Lt Gen DP Pandey, Chinar Corps Commander.
“A well-trained terrorist, Lamboo was expert in making of IEDs. He was instrumental in planning and executing attacks on security establishments and civilian killings,”, Inspector General of Police, (IGP) Kashmir, Vijay Kumar said and added that he was the mastermind and main accused in the February 14, 2019, Pulwama attack
He was also involved in the killing of SPO Fayaz Ahmed, his wife, and his daughter in Tral, recently, the IGP said.
“Lamboo was from the family of Masood Azhar. He was involved in the conspiracy and planning of the Pulwama attack. He stayed with Adil Dar till the day of the attack, the viral video of Adil Dar had his voice in it”, the IGP said.
“Out of 19 terrorists, seven including Adil Dar, Mudasir Khan, Umar Farooq, Kamran, Qari Yasir, Sajjad Bhat and today Lamboo were killed in encounters, seven terrorists or OGWs have been arrested and five are still absconding”, IGP said but asserted that those absconding would be brought to justice.
Saifullah was also instrumental in motivating and recruiting the youth to join terror ranks and also motivating local youth for stone-pelting and other activities.
