Adil Gulzar with the Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist group was killed by security forces in South Kashmir’s Budgam district. Gulzar had begun to be tracked after intelligence discovered that he had planned the assassination of five Kashmiris, two security guards, a journalist, a professor and a BJP spokesperson. The raid was conducted in Brahmpora village during a cordon and search operation (CASO). The terrorist opened fire before being killed during the encounter. Gulzar had recently joined the JeM organization after being affiliated with two other terrorist groups in the past.
