Al-Umar Mujahideen claim responsibility for attack on SSB jawans


Terrorist outfit Al-Umar Mujahideen has claimed responsibility for the attack on paramilitary Sashastra Seema Bal on Friday night in Srinagar in which one soldier died and eight others were injured.

Militants fired upon the SSB men in Zakura as they were returning from duty. Officials said that eight SSB men were injured in the attack and a 24-year-old jawan succumbed to his injuries. A J&K policeman, Zulfikar Ali, was also critically injured in the attack.
Top police, paramilitary and administrative officials had participated in the wreath-laying ceremony of the slain SSB Jawan, Ghanshyam Gurjar. Gurjar, 24, was a resident of Dausa Rajasthan and had joined the force in April 2013.
If the claims of the Al-Umar Mujahideen are true, the attack would mean resurgence, after 16 years, of the indigenous group led by Mushtaq Zargar, who was released along with two others in Kandahar in December 1999 in exchange of the passengers of the hijacked Indian Airlines plane IC-814. The two others, who were swapped in exchange of the 155 hostages, were JeM chief Masood Azhar and Omar Saeed Sheikh.
