A top Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist, Khalid, was killed by the security forces today in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla. He was believed to have plotted a series of suicide attacks in Kashmir, including one last week near the Srinagar airport, in which a soldier was killed.

The state’s police call the killing a major success in their anti-terror fight, likening it to taking away the “eyes and ears” of the Pakistan-based Jaish, which has become the biggest security challenge in Kashmir.

“He was one the oldest surviving foreign terrorists operating in Kashmir. He had been here since 2009 and knew about everything in Kashmir,” said senior police officer Munir Ahmad Khan.

Sources say Khalid’s visit to a girlfriend helped the forces track him down and kill him. A woman he was romantically involved with told the police that he was likely to visit her this morning. She angrily referred to him as “jahannum” (Hell).

Reports say Khalid was intercepted by the Special Operations Group at Ladoora. He was carrying a pistol and a grenade, said the police.
