Kashmir loses its Dabangg officer: Shock and grief as counter-insurgency hero Altaf Ahmad Dar is shot dead by militants
.
Senior police officers describe him as “a man who single-handedly finished the dreaded Hizbul Mujahideen”. They say his photo is in the United Jihad Council (UJC) office in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK), and that the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI and the UJC would call him ‘Altaf laptop’.
.
Such was his stature that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) would send IPS officers to get training under him.
.
But on Wednesday, his tryst with terror came to an end.
.
One of Kashmir’s most active and competent counter-insurgency officers, Inspector Altaf Ahmad Dar, who was in his late 30s, was killed in an encounter with militants in north Kashmir’s Bandipora area. He was tracking some militants who were on their way to receive their accomplices, who had recently infiltrated into the state, a top police official said.
.
The Jammu and Kashmir Police described his killing as a huge loss to police force.
.
“He was brilliant. One of the best among us. It is a huge and irreparable loss. Very difficult to overcome this shock,” said a senior superintendent of police known for his counter insurgency operations.
.
Since 2004, all Hizbul Mujahideen top commanders, including their chiefs, were killed or arrested in operations carried out by him. ///
