In 2015, the terrorists posed for camera without a veil
The "pioneers" of new-age militancy in Kashmir had posted a picture on social media in 2015. Breaking free from the earlier traditions, the terrorists didn't hide their faces as they posed for the camera.
The picture became hugely popular among the youth of the valley.
Tiger was seen at the extreme right of the middle row. He took over Hizbul after his aides died.
Tiger had been active in militancy for the last six years and was an expert in fabricating IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices). SP Pani, Inspector General of police, Kashmir, called Tiger a "big-catch".
The other terrorist killed was identified as Tariq Moulvi, who urged youth to pick up arms.
The third terrorist was identified as Shariq Ahmad Negroo of Chotigam, Shopian.
