Another terrorist got shot in an encounter with security forces in Kupwara. Terrorist Mannan Wani, research scholar who later turned into a militant was shot to death. He was one of the top men of Hizbul Mujahideen in Kashmir Valley.

After the encounter, internet services have been stopped and even all the educational institutions have been closed in the Kupwara district to avoid any kind off mishappening in the district. The killing news of the terrorist spread out and resulted in clashes in some areas of the district.

The encounter in which the militant died occurred in Langate which is roughly 80 km from state capital Srinagar. The encounter was planned when police received information about the presence of two terrorists in a residential house in the area. The security forces launched a pre-dawn operation to end up the militants residing in the area.

Since the urban local bodies elections are going on in the state, the security forces have been strengthened to avoid any hurdle in it.

The Militant Mannan Wani who got shot was a research scholar of the Aligarh Muslim University. He joined the militant troop at the beginning of this year which had shocked his friends. He was informed missing from the university and after few days was caught with AK assault rifle on social media. He was research scholar of geology subject.

One of his friends displayed shock over his decision and said that he was expecting him to be part of civil services where another friend shared about his achievement at an international conference in Bhopal in 2016. But Wani had been justifying his decision to chose it through his articles on social media.

It’s really astonishing when highly educated people take such a decision. The youth who holds the responsibility to make peace and development in the nation becomes the cause of terrorism. Wani, who could have been part of administrative ended his life as a terrorist.
