HuJI commander killed

Taking benefit of the on-going infighting between different militant outfits, security forces eliminated the most wanted “self-styled” commander of the Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) Mohammed Amin, alias Rahi. The slain militant was involved in more than 20 militancy incidents and had let loose a reign of terror in Chatroo tehsil of Kishtwar.
Although the police claimed to have eliminated the militant along with other security forces after getting information about his presence in Sigdhi area, sources said ultras rival militant group Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) have shared information with the police about the movement of Mohammed Amin. It was only after that information security forces launched a joint operation on Diwali night and successfully eliminated the self-styled commander.
One Chinese pistol, four Chinese grenade and other ammunitions were recovered from the possession of slain militant. Sources disclosed that differences between HM and HuJI have been cropped up after Mohammed Amin had started extortion and kidnapping in the Chatroo area. As Amin had been making huge money through extortion, HM group also wanted their share. The slain militant was involved in the incident of setting ablaze a bulldozer of a contractor and abduction of its driver Satpal on October 9 at Sigdi village in Chatroo area. The terrorist had set free the driver later, reportedly after taking some ransom.
On June 14, 2007, Mohammed Amin had snatched weapons from the PSOs of the former MLA Qazi Jallalud Din and later the same weapons were recovered from the possession of two HuJI militants who were gunned by cops in Bhatta area.
