Jammu, Nov 2: Rukhsana Kausar, the Jammu Kashmir 'braveheart' who killed a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist has reportedly been appointed as the Special Police Officer (SPO).
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Rajouri, Shafkat Wattali who announced Rukhsana's appointment on Monday, Nov 2, also informed that Aijaz and her uncle Wakalat Hussain have been appointed SPOs in the Jammu Kashmir police force.
18-year-old Rukhsana Kausar shot up in popularity after she killed a top Pakistani LeT terrorist and injured another militant when they barged into her house.
On Friday, Oct 30 night, LeT militants armed with guns and grenades launched an attack on her house to avenge the death of the LeT militant. However, no one was hurt during the attack as the family was not at home.
The family was shifted to a government quarter in a high security police colony after the incident hit the media and was publicised.
Wattali, however, denied reports that Rukhsana was being shifted to New Delhi for safety reasons. He said that the family were only going to New Delhi to attend an award function organised by All India Anti-Terrorist Front headed by M S Bitta.
