Terming it as a ‘huge achievement’, the Jammu and Kashmir police and the security forces on August 1 in a joint operation eliminated the top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant Abu Dujana.
Minutes before he was killed, it is believed that he was called by an army officer asking him to surrender. In the nine-minute audio of his last conversation, the officer is heard asking Dujana to surrender but he refuses, saying “Allah does what is fated.”
The officer then replies: “Why aren’t you surrendering… Pakistani agencies are using you… Think about your parents.”
Dujana says, “The day he left home in Gilgit Baltistan, his parents died for him.”
“Hum nikley thhey shaheed hone. Main kya karu. Jisko game khelna hai, khelo. Kabhi hum aage, kabhi aap, aaj aapne pakad liya, mubarak ho aapko. Jisko jo karna hai karlo (I’d left home for martyrdom. What can I do? Sometimes we are ahead, sometimes you—today you caught me. Congratulations. Now do what you have to),” replies Dujana. “Surrender nahi kar sakta. Jo meri kismat may likha hoga, Allah wahi karega, theek hai? (I won’t surrender. Allah does what’s fated, okay?),” Dujana says in the phone conversation.

The officer is heard making continuous appeals to Dujana to not recruit youth for terror in the Valley but the Lashkar militant suddenly ends the phone call.
Dujana had gone to meet one of his women friends in Pulwama when he was circled by the security forces and police, following a tip off by local policemen who had been tracking him.
Dujana, a resident of Gilgit-Baltistan region in the Pakistan-administered Kashmir, was said to be responsible for a number of attacks on Indian security forces, including the August 2015 Udhampur strike that left two Border Security Force troopers dead and 12 injured.
