Srinagar: Abu Dujana, a Lashkar terrorist among the most-wanted in Jammu and Kashmir, was shot dead by security forces during an encounter at Hakripura near Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday morning.
As per sources, Dujana was hiding in the house with Arif Lalihaari and two more terrorists when security forces surrounded the area around 3 am.
The forces had acted on intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists in the village. When they arrived, the terrorists opened fire, prompting the forces to retaliate.
