  • Hakoora encounter: Third militant was from Hyderabad, claims outfit

"He was radicalised into Islamic State ideology through social media and went to Kashmir to participate in the terrorist activities of ISIS", Jha said. Meanwhile, the Bhadradri Kothagudem district police are collecting more information about Toufeeq's family background and how he managed to get in touch with the terror outfit in Kashmir.

"Taufeeq started his journey in 2017 after making hijrah (migration) from India's Hyderabad city to the mountains of Kashmir and was among the first in the ranks of Ansar Ghazwatul Hind.His jihadi names were Sultan Zabul Al-Hind and Abu Zarr Al Hindi", the outfit said.

Interestingly, a viral picture of Toufeeq on the social media claimed that the militant was earlier associated with Zakir's group and later joined "Islamic State Kashmir". "After claims on social media we are further checking details", the report mentioned.

A key document that was recovered from the possession of slain al-Qaeda militant Mohammed Toufeeq helped security forces in South Kashmir identify and confirm that he was from Telangana. "While the search was on, the hiding militants fired upon the party ensuing an encounter during which three militants were killed", they had added. He reached the valley in 2017 and joined the outfit.


On Tuesday evening, Al Nasr, which some believe is the news bulletin of Ansar ul Gazwat ul Hind, said that the third militant was from Telangana and identified him as Mohammad Toufeeq.

The bodies of Eesa and Owais were buried in graveyards in their respective localities while Toufeeq was buried at Gantamullah area of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, where generally unclaimed foreign militants are buried. According to police, the man was allegedly working for Islamic State (IS).

In 2008, two militants from Kerala were killed in a gunbattle in frontier district of Kupwara who were identified by their aliases Yasin and Fayaz.
