Bengali Hunt Desk: The army killed Hizbul Mujahideen chief Riyaz Naikoo after a long encounter in Avantipur, Jammu and Kashmir yesterday. The army valued the Hezbollah commander at Rs 12 lakh. Riaz has been actively involved in militant activities since 2016. Even after becoming a professor of mathematics in his early life, Naiku decided to make himself a militant by attending the funeral of a militant.
The militant commander of Hezbollah was a direct supporter of Pakistan in the name of Azad Kashmir. The army has been looking for Riaz for the past few years. Finally, the Indian Army soldiers succeeded in their operation yesterday. Troops have killed Riaz Naik in retaliation for the deaths of five soldiers in an encounter with militants in Kashmir two days ago.
On the other hand, separatists attacked army vehicles after news of Riaz's death spread yesterday. The whole car was surrounded by violence. Later, senior army officers came to the spot and brought the situation under control. After Riaz's death, the army will not hand over his body to his family.
And the main reason for this is the huge crowd gathered at the janaza of the militants. Although the rule is not new, police have been forced to make the decision after a militant was killed in Kashmir and a huge crowd gathered at his funeral. Due to this, lockdown is going on in the whole country. And in this lockdown, if the crowd gathers at the janaza of the militants, the danger of spreading corona in the area is more. That is why this decision has been taken.
On the other hand, there are fears that a Kashmiri youth may not become a militant again by taking part in Riaz's janaza. Riaz's funeral will be conducted by the police. Riaz's family will be present at the funeral.
