LeT ‘commander’ known as throat-slitter among two terrorists killed in Srinagar

SRINAGAR: Lashkar-e-Taiba “commander” Muhammad Saleem Parray, notorious for killing 12 civilians in 2016 by slitting their throats and for several murders thereafter, and a Pakistani terrorist of the banned outfit were killed in two shootouts with security forces on Monday in Srinagar’s Shalimar locality famous for its Mughal Garden.
Parray from Hajin in north Kashmir’s Bandipora was one the most-wanted terrorists associated with the group led by Burhan Wani, whose killing in a 2016 anti-terrorism operation triggered widespread public unrest in the Valley.
Kashmir range IGP Vijay Kumar said the Parray’s death was a big success for security forces as he was involved in the murder of a dozen people in 2016, the year he became active as a Lashkar operative and came to be identified as a dreaded throat-slitter.
Parray committed more murders in the subsequent years—including that of the Dar brothers Bashir and Ghulam, and Hilal Ahmad Parray, all in Hajin in May 2018.
The other LeT terrorist killed in Monday’s operation was identified as Hafiz alias Hamza of Pakistan. He had killed two policemen in Bandipora in December 2021 and then shifted to the Harwan neighbourhood of Srinagar, the IGP said.
The officer said a team of Srinagar police and CRPF cornered Parray during a search in Shalimar, well-known for the Mughal Garden on the outskirts of Srinagar. He fired at the security forces and got killed in return fire. Soon after, another operation was carried out by police, CRPF and Army personnel in the Gusu area of Shalimar and terrorist Hamza of Pakistan was gunned down.
Parray was known for his ruthlessness, abducting civilians he suspected to be police informers. They were often tortured to death. “He was involved in slitting the throats of many civilians in Hajin. He provided logistic support to terrorists operating in the area,” the IGP said.
