Adnan alias Ismail alias Lamboo was closely related to Jaish founder Maulana Masood Azhar and had entered India in 2018.
In a big success for the security forces in Kashmir, Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist Adnan alias Ismail alias Lamboo was killed in an encounter today (July 31) morning.
In a post, the Indian Army said, “Op Hangalmarg, #Pulwama. A Joint Op was launched today morning at Hangalmarg in Dachigam forest, Pulwama based on @JmuKmrPolice inputs. Contact was established. 02 #Terrorists eliminated. 01 AK & 01 M4 recovered. Joint Op in progress.”
The identity of the other killed terrorist is being checked.
The encounter started on the specific intelligence inputs of the Jammu & Kashmir Police and Army. The area was cordoned off, and the search has begun.
Ismail has a close association with Umar Farooq and Sameer Ahmed Dar alias Hanjila Jihadi, the masterminds of the Pulwama suicide attack.
On February 14, 2019, a suicide bomber attacked a convoy of security forces in the Pulwama district. Forty brave soldiers were martyred.
Ismail was known by the name of Saifullah in the Jaish circle, a very coveted name given to select commanders by the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed.
