Abu Dujana, after the attack in Udhampur and subsequent arrest of Abu Qasim, took over as the commander of Lashkar-e-Taiba in South Kashmir. Previously, in the gunfight between forces and the militants in other parts of Pulwama (Goripora-Vandakhpora), Dujana had fled with 8 of his men while two of his associates were killed.
After the clashes between mob and the army were over, the army had suspicions about the presence of militants in the neighborhood. So they went on a search operation where they found extensive ammunition and guns and mobile phones all suspected to be belonging to the Lashar Commander Abu Dujana. It was the protests and the demonstrations of the locals that help him flee. Hoping to catch him sooner than later, the army is now in charge.
