A new breed of militants that is mainly operating in Kashmir’s southern districts, is being led by a young commander- Burhan Muzafar Wani- who had picked arms five years ago as a teenager.
Wani is a resident of Tral town in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district and is son of a school principal. He has emerged as the face of Kashmir’s new militant generation whose audacity has alarmed the security apparatus.
According to Police sources, 21 year old Wani is the commander of Hizbul Mujahideen outfit in South Kashmir’s four districts where the number of militants in the recent months has increased from 35 to 80.
