Born in Pakistan, Dujana was wanted in over three dozen attacks on security forces and civilians and carried a reward of Rs. 15 lakh.

Soon, armed militants appeared in the crowd and began fired at security personnel engaged in the operations after realising that the two LeT leaders had been killed, they said.

Dujana, the divisional commander of the LeT, hails from the Gilgit-Baltistan region in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and is believed to be the longest surviving militant in Jammu and Kashmir. One or two more terrorists were reportedly trapped in the encounter along with Dujana and Lilhaari. On Tuesday morning in Hakripora village, a joint team of Army's 50 RR, Special Operation Group of Jammu and Kashmir Police and 183, 182 battalions of CRPF cordoned off. "Good riddance to nuisance", said Kashmir police chief Munir Khan on Dujana's killing. A police official said that Dujana carried out attacks on CRPF convoy at Pampore in June past year in which 8 CRPF jawans were killed and 22 others injured. Northern command of Indian Army also confirmed the killing and termed the operation as 'swift and surgical'. "Huge achievement for police and SF", tweeted the J&K police. He was categorised as A++ by security forces.

The gunfight raged for about two hours before the forces blew up the house the militants, resulting in the killing of both militants.

While there was no official word on the identity of the deceased, locals who had brought him to the Pulwama district hospital identified the deceased as one Firdaus Ahmad, a police official said.
