Srinagar: Security forces in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir killed a terrorist named Haji Arif in an encounter on November 26, 2021 (Friday) in an operation against terror that Pakistan and it has nurtured. Tell us that Haji Arif had been engaged in infiltrating Pakistani terrorists into India for the past several years. Pakistani Special Force and Pak Rangers supported him in this work.

Haji Arif, who was killed by security forces, had previously served in the Pakistani army, according to the report. Its significance may be gauged by the fact that the Pakistani government has handed him property next to the LoC. He was named commander of the launch pad in Pakistan's Dharkundi Khuraita region, which is adjacent to the Line of Control.

According to a senior Indian Army officer, security personnel along the Line of Control had received information from Pakistan. Three to five terrorists were on the watch for infiltration into India, according to security agencies.

A cordon was set up at Bhimbar and the surrounding villages based on the information. There was gunfire from both sides as the attackers approached. During the engagement, security personnel shot and killed one terrorist. Haji Arif was eventually recognised as the man.

Haji Arif, a Pakistani army officer, had excellent contacts with the terrorists. He was given the task of managing the launch pad so that he could take use of it. Haji Arif was well-versed in all of the LoC's streets and passages. Haji Arif is also believed to have participated in the Nowshera sector operation of Pakistan's controversial Border Action Unit (BAT) team in 2018. Arif was in charge of the Pakistani batsmen. Haji Arif also misled other people's children and incited them to fight jihad against India.
