Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami commander Ilyas Kashmiri was reportedly killed in a drone strike in North Waziristan last week. According to the report of The News Daily, Ilyas had also worked in the Elite Special Service Group, a commando unit of the Pakistan Army. In the 1980s, he was hired by the army to train Afghan mujahideen fighting Russian forces in Afghanistan.

Ilyas led a guerrilla campaign

It is said that on February 26, 2000, Ilyas Kashmiri led a guerrilla campaign against the Indian Army in the Nakyal sector after crossing the Line of Control (LoC) with 25 terrorists. At the same time, Ilyas surrounded the bunker of the Indian Army and threw grenades inside.

Musharraf gave a cash award of Rs 1 lakh

“In the meantime, Ilyas managed to abduct an injured Indian officer, who he later slit his throat with,” the report said. Kashmiri went back to Pakistan with the severed head of the Indian officer and presented the head to top army officials, including the then army chief General Musharraf. For this, Pervez Musharraf gave a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh to Ilyas Kashmiri.

The report also states that after pictures of Ilyas with the head of the dead Indian officer were published in some Pakistani newspapers, he became very famous among terrorists.
