    From masterminding the Udhampur attack, the 27 year old Dujana had become a menace in South Kashmir.

    A dossier on this 27 year old operative in the possession of OneIndia states thathe joined the Lashkar-e-Tayiba when he was 17. His rise in the outfit has been meteoric.

    A resident of Gilgit-Baltistan, he operates out of the Pulwama region in South Kashmir.His planing and style of execution had impressed his bosses who appointed him as a deputy to Abu Qasim. Following the death of Abu Qasim, Dujana became the obvious choice to lead the outfit in Kashmir.

    Dujana's main target was the Indian army. All his attacks were directed against the armed forces in Kashmir as he believes that it is the armed forces which is coming in the way of their so-called Kashmir struggle.

    His name featured in several attacks which also included the ones at Pampore and Udhampur. In fact he was the one who had planned the Udhampur attack in which two BSF personnel were martyred.

    When Mohammad Naved one of the terrorists was caught alive, he confirmed to the police that the attack was masterminded by Dujana and Qasim. The investigations being conducted into the recent Pampore attack had also found that it was Dujana who had masterminded the attack.
