How operation Abu Dujana was inspired by Hollywood's 'Zero Dark Thirty'

Students throwing stones at the police during clashes outside a college in Srinagar on Tuesday. Violent clashes erupted in the Valley following the killing of most wanted Lashkar-e Taiba Commander Abu Dujana and his associate in Pulwama encounter

Top Lashkar-i-Toiba commander Abu Dujana was killed on Tuesday along with his associate in an encounter with government forces in Pulwama district of south Kashmir.

27-year-old Dujana, who figured at number one in the list of "most unsafe terrorists" released by the Army in June this year, had taken over operational command of LeT in late 2015 following the killing of Abu Qasim.

Meanwhile, restrictions were imposed in Srinagar areas falling under the jurisdiction of even Police Stations including Khanyar, MR Gunj, Safakadal, Rainawari, Kralkhud, Nowhatta and Maisuma.

As news of Dujana's killing spread, thousands of Kashmir residents came out onto the streets and clashed with government forces, throwing stones at them. Asked whether Dujana would be laid to rest in Uri area of Baramulla district as has been the practice of police with non-local militants over the past few years, Khan evaded a direct answer, saying: "He will be given proper burial in case his country denies he was their national".

Baseball Hall of Fame induction: Jeff Bagwell thanks Craig Biggio, Astros fans
Jeff Bagwell , who played his entire 15-year career for the Houston Astros , just wanted to be able to play pro baseball one day. For a little guy with not much speed, I truly appreciate that. "But I'm insanely glad that we have him to hang onto".

Security officials say Dujana, who reportedly crossed from Pakistan-administered Kashmir in 2010, was the longest surviving fighter in the Indian-controlled territory and used his popularity to escape military traps and mount attacks on security forces.

Indian troops and police special counterinsurgency forces surrounded the village of Harkipora after a tip off that the militant and an aide were hiding in a house.

One youth died in the clashes between locals and security forces following LeT chief Abu Dujana's death.

Police said the bodies of the two militants were charred "nearly beyond recognition".

Van smashes into Los Angeles crowd, injuring 9 people
Witnesses described a horrific scene with multiple victims pinned under the vehicle, and one man bleeding profusely from the head. About 7 p.m., officials towed away from the van , which had a flat tire and a damaged bumper, as a crowd of people watched.

Dujana was replaced by Abu Muhammad Ismail as the Divisional Commander of the LeT, a Pakistan-based group that masterminded the 2008 Mumbai terror attack that killed 166 Indians and foreigners.

Troops retaliated by firing tear gas, pellet guns and bullets, killing a young man and injuring at least 70 others, witnesses and a police officer said.

Authorities have issued orders for closing all the educational institutions while mobile internet has also been suspended across Kashmir as a "precautionary measure to prevent rumour-mongering on social media", a senior police officer said.

After ensuring complete secrecy, Jammu and Kashmir Police took custody of Dujana's body and moved it to the other side of the valley.
