The father of the Jammu and Kashmir policeman, who sacrificed his life to save hundreds of lives, Ahmad Sheikh, said he is proud of his son. He said his son will never come back, but he saved hundreds of lives by neutralizing terrorists. The entire nation is today proud of their brave son who did not even wink or give a second thought of combatting with the dreaded terrorists.
Sheikh said he had spoken to his son three days ago for the last time. The martyred Jammu and Kashmir policeman, Mudasir Ahmad, was a part of the Baramulla encounter in which three Pakistani terrorists of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) outfit were killed on Tuesday. Vijay Kumar, Inspector General of Police, said the encounter took place at one of the ‘nakas’ (checkpoints) laid by the security forces across the valley.
“There were nakas across Kashmir on Wednesday. At one such naka at Najibhat crossing in the Kreeri area, there was a chance encounter. Three Pakistani JeM terrorists were killed,” the IGP told reporters here.
Kumar said while the police force suffered a loss, the killing of the three terrorists was a huge success. “The three terrorists could have come to Srinagar and planned an attack,” he said. The IGP said the terrorists were active in the hilly areas of Gulmarg for the last three to four months. “We were regularly tracking them,” he said, adding, so far this year, 22 Pakistani terrorists have been killed in various encounters with security forces. There will be increased attempts to neutralize Pakistani terrorists, Kumar added.
