Saifullah was also a notorious militant like Riaz Naik. The army placed him in the A ++ category. But no matter how infamous the militant is, it is very difficult to escape from the hands of the Indian army. Saifullah was also called a militant doctor because he studied medicine.
According to information received, Saifullah was a resident of Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. He took paramedical training. Saifullah has also worked as a medical assistant. In 2012, he took the militant path and joined Hizbul Mujahideen. Saifullah has been active in South Kashmir for the last eight years.
Saifullah used to treat the wounded militants in the encounter. And then the militants brainwashed Saifullah, after which he resorted to militancy. When Riaz Naiku was made Hezbollah's commander in 2016, Saifullah was given the responsibility of deputy commander. After Riaz's death, Saifullah was the biggest claimant to Hezbollah's command. And this is why he was made the chief of Hezbollah.
Hizbul Mujahideen was involved in the killing of three BJP leaders in Jammu and Kashmir two days ago. Within 72 hours of that incident, the army killed Saifullah, the commander of Hezbollah.
