In the telephonic conversation between Dujana and the officer who commissioned a Kashmiri civilian to begin the conversation, Dujana asks the officer, "Kya haal hai?". According to a police spokesman, he was involved in grenade attacks on security forces at Kakapora.
During the phone call conversation, Dujana said, "My ma-baap (parents) died the day I left them".
Crack teams of the Special Operations Group (SOG) were quickly mobilised and moved towards Hakripura, adjacent to Neva, a bastion for LeT terrorists located 13 km from the district headquarters of Pulwama, they said.
Addressing the media with Lt Gen J.S. Sandhu, General Officer Commanding of the Army's 15th Corps, Inspector General of Police Munir Khan said: "Dujana's killing is good riddance to a nuisance".
Finally, the security forces took the decision to go ahead with the encounter.
The officer advises Dujana to show concern for his parents back home but he says that he left his family back in Gilgit-Baltistan. "Today you have caught me, congratulations". He refused, triggering the gun battle.
"On July 31 night we got the input that Dujana is taking shelter in a house in Pulawama's Hakripura village".
Meanwhile, the telecast of news on local cable channels in the Valley remained banned since 2010, when there were massive protest during which more than 120 people, mostly youths, were killed in security force and police firing in the Valley.
"Of late, Dujana was not very active and another Lashkar operative Abu Ismail has taken his place".
The police said Dujana had broken loose from the LeT in last few months after which he established close proximity with Zakir Musa, who was recently appointed the head of Al Qaeda terror outfit in the Kashmir Valley.
They include Lashkar commander Bashir Ahmad Wani, Hizb commander Sabzar Bhat and now Lashkar commander Abu Dujana.
Dujana had plotted major attacks - at least three dozen - and was a key recruiter for the Lashkar-e-Taiba until he was sidelined recently. The tip came from a trusted source and there was no time to lose, said officials, recapping the dramatic events of the nightlong operation that led to the killing of Dujana and an accomplice here.
