Abdul Rehman Dar

Abdul Rehman Dar belongs to Tral area of Pulwama District, which has remained traditionally a hotbed of terrorism and secessionist activities during last three decades, largely due to a strong influence of Jamat-e-Islami, (now banned) in the area. The secessionist and terrorist contamination of local Policemen from Tral area came to be a serious problem in 2004-06 and to overcome this threat the Police department transferred and posted a large number of policemen who were natives of Tral area to Ladakh division. While almost all the policemen vulnerable to JeI and terrorist propaganda and trap, stayed away from any wrongdoing, a few like he continued their willful collaboration with terrorists. True to the adage, that a man is known by the company he keeps Abdul Rehman came to be known locally being always in company of those persons in his area who were working as Over Ground Workers (OGWs) of terror outfits. This was revealed in discreet enquiries made for him. One such close associate of Abdul Rehman was his neighbor Sajad Hussain Parray, a staunch Over Ground Worker (OGW). He, inspite of being a government employee was also doing private business with Sajad dealing with readymade garments. He and Sajad in times to come would become the most trusted accomplice of several terrorist commanders operating in Tral area.

Anayatullah Shah Pirzada

Anayatullah Shah Pirzada ( Asstt. Lineman, Jal Shakti Department). Anayatullah Shah Pirzada was appointed as a ‘helper’ in Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department, now Jal Shakti, in 1995 and was deployed in Jal Shakti (PHE) Division Baramulla where he continued to be posted up to 2009, the year he got promoted to Asst. Lineman. From 2009 to 2013 heremained posted in Jal Shakti Division North Sopore and is currently posted at Watergam, Baramulla.
As per records Anayatullah Shah isa terrorist associate of Al-Badr Mujahideen, a proscribed terror outfit, who readily offered himself in furthering anti-national activities and gradually turned himself into an effective worker and organiser for the terrorist groups. He worked covertly in a variety of ways to support, sustain and further the agenda of the terrorism. Individuals like him do not usually wield arms and participate in terrorist violence directly but assist, abet, and aid the terrorists in several ways including receiving infiltrating terrorists groups from across the border and settling them in J&K, guiding them through, not only by logistic support but also informing them about movements of security forces to escape Cordon and Search Operations (CASO) and also helping them in dodging the Security check points, nakas and patrols of Police and security forces, using their knowledge of the local terrain and that of security force deployment patterns.

Ghulam Rasool Bhat

Bhat was recruited as a constable in Jammu and Kashmir Police in its Executive wing in 2011. After completing his BRTC course at CTC Lethpora, he was transferred to District Budgam in 2012 and remained posted as an Assistant Kote NCO (Armoury Keeper) from 2017 onwards in Budgam District Police Lines.Gh. Rasool Bhat has always had subscribed to secessionist and radical ideology. This however, surfaced and came to notice subsequently during his interrogation and other discreet enquires. Rasool’s story runs like this:- He was inducted into active terrorism by a network of over ground workers (OGWs) and terrorists of the Lalgam Tral area, of which Gh. Rasool Bhat is a native of. Pertinently, the area around Tral has remained a hot bed of Pakistan sponsored terrorism since 1989, primarily due to the influence of banned organization Jamat-e-Islami in the area. Under the guidance of the OGWs/Terrorists. Sources said, he got himself posted as an Assistant Kote NCO in Budgam District Police Lines (Kote is a facility in Police Lines meant for storing and repairing weapons) and managed his continuous posting there for many years with the ulterior and nefarious aim to provide technical support to terrorists for the repair and maintenance of their firearms as well as arrange ammunition for them.

Shabeer Ahmad Wani

He was initially engaged under the Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReT) scheme in 2004 and later got regularised as permanent Teacher.Shabeer. Ahmad Wani, is an active member (rukun) of banned Jamat-e-Islami (JeI). Besides, being actively involved in organising and taking lead role in JeI related programmes in Kulgam area, he like everyone else in JeI has been a strong protagonist of secession of J&K from India. Shabeer played a pivotal role in nourishing, strengthening and proliferating conducive ecosystem for secessionism and terrorism, not only in his local area but also in the neighbouring districts of Shopian and Anantnag. It is largely by the virtue of JeI activities in South Kashmir especially in Kulgam, known as the hotbed of banned JeI, that terrorist enjoyed a field day and large base of OGWs terror networks and modules sprung in every nook and corner in the area. Sources said, Shabeer Ahmad Wani, for being an active functionary of JeI played a substantial role in his sphere of influence in strengthening JeI and creating a network of people amongst JeI sympathizers who became the OGWs and foot soldiers of Hizbul-Mujahideen (HM) terror outfit. As being a part and parcel of the JeI system, he got naturally introduced and attracted to Hizbul Mujhahideen (HM) terror outfit cadres, as it is widely known that HM has been the military wing of JeI.
