Abu Dujana was a top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander who used to operate from the south side and was highly influential in orchestrating terror activities in the Kashmir valley.

The A++ category militant became active in early 2013 and was 26 years old when he was neutralised by security forces of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Rashtriya Rifles (RR) on Tuesday during an encounter in Hakripura village of Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir.

Carrying a bounty of almost Rs 15 lakh on his head, Dujana originally hailed from Balochistan, one of the four provinces of Pakistan and had Ayoub Lone and Abu Ali by his side as one of his close associates. 

According to sources, Abu was a master in breaching security barriers as he was quite bit of an ace in architecture.

Dujana mainly used to influence the south side of Kashmir and received a strong local support in doing so.

He was considered the mastermind of EDI, Pampore attack and other such attacks carried out by the LeT group.

In ranks, he served as the divisional commander of the terror group in South Kashmir while his last movement was observed at Samboora.
