New Delhi (NVI): A Pakistani terrorist, who was killed in encounter in Kashmir’s Baramulla district, got trapped in the net of security forces as he had gone to meet a girl, according to a purported Whatsapp chat.
Yesterday, a terrorist identified as Sultan was killed in an encounter with forces in Check-e-Saloosa area at around 11 am. “When joint teams zeroed in on a suspected spot where terrorists were hiding, they came under heavy volume of fire leading to a gunbattle,” security officials said in a statement.

Today, a Srinagar-based activist Al Iskandar posted a tweet, sharing a purported WhatsApp chat, believed to be a conversation between an Over Ground Worker (OGW) and his terrorist handler. The Whatsapp chat reveals what Pakistani terrorists do in Kashmir in the name of so-called jihad.
“Bhai aap ko mainay pehlay hi bataya tha ki iska khayal rakhna yeh Pakistani kum dimag hotay hai (Brother I had told you to handle him, these Pakistanis are dim-wit),” reads the purported chat, apparently by a terrorist-handler.
The OGW, whom the terrorist handler is addressing as ‘Musa’ in the chat, is believed to have accompanied the slain terrorist who went to meet the girl. “Bhai jaan mai khud badi mushkil se bach gaya yeh raat ko us ladki ko milnay gaya tha mainay bahut mana kiya yeh nahi mana (Brother, I myself saved my life somehow, he (Sultan) went to meet that girl. I requested him a lot but he refused),” says the OGW in a reply to the handler, indicating that the former might have escaped during the cordon and search operation in the area by forces.
In further conversation, as shown in the purported chat, the handles ask about the girl to which the OGW replies that she is from a family where some terrorists and OGWs had taken shelter a few days ago.
“Bhai jis time cordon hua mai usi time waha se bhag gaya (When the forces cordoned off the area, I immediately escaped),” the OGW tells the handler.
The handler further replies to the OGW to keep it a secret that the slain Pakistani terrorist was affiliated to Al-Badr, a lesser-known terror outfit, trying to stage a comeback years after it became extinct.
Al-Badr was banned by the Government of India under The Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 2004. On 27 April, 2005 the State Department of the United States Government identified Al-Badr as a terrorist organisation in its list of 40 Foreign militant Organisations. Al-Badr is currently on the U.S. State Department list of Designated Foreign militant Organisations.
