Clashes at Zakir Musa's native village in Tral as forces launch CASO”

Intense clashes erupted after Zakir Musa and his aide were reportedly trapped in a residential house at Noorpora, his native village in Tral on Friday evening.

Acting on a tip off, the security forces comprising the army, CRPF and the SOG of the state police laid a cordon to nab or neutralise Musa.

Zakir Musa, who quit the insurgent outfit Hizbul Mujahideen after it refused to endorse his warning to "behead" the separatists for preaching political nationalism, was announced as the Ansar Ghawatul Hind chief, or the head of Al Qaeda in Kashmir by the West Asia-based terror outfit. Clashes went on for hours with more reinforcements being arriving in the area. The operation was underway by the time this report was first published. The forces lobbed tear shells to disperse the protesting youth.

According to police, the three were killed in a gunfight in Gulab Bagh village in south Kashmir's Pulwama.

Sensing trouble for Musa and his associates trapped with him in Tral area of Pulwama, the over ground workers of the terrorist started spreading message using social media platform, appealing to the locals to come out and thwart the ongoing operation by the security forces.

Reports said that forces tightened cordon in Shah Mohalla, Peer Mohalla and Dangerpora in Noorpora and launched house-to-house searches. Thousands of people attended funeral prayers led by noted cleric Mushtaq Ahmed Veeri.
