Zeenat-ul-Islam, aide killing: police version

Al Badr commander Zeenat ul Islam was killed along with an associate in a gunfight with the government forces in Kathora area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district last evening.

Here is the police version on the gunfight:

Zeenat-ul-Islam, according to police records, had a long history of crime records since 2006 when he got affiliated with Al-Badr and was later arrested, said the spokesman. 

However after he was released, he again got recycled in 2016 and subsequently got affiliated with proscribed outfit HM and recently he joined Al-Badr outfit in Shopian District. Consequently he became the chief of the said outfit.
