- Top terrorists killed in Valley by forces after tip-offs from lovers
- Ditched wives, girlfriends are sharing key info: security forces
- When terrorists go to meet these women, they often go alone: sources
Khalid was injured and managed to escape briefly before he was cordoned off and shot.
A woman who he was romantically involved with told the police that he was likely to visit her this morning. She angrily referred to him as "Jahannum" (Hell). They were not in an exclusive relationship.
"He had about 17 girlfriends - some new, some old. A few who he had ditched became vengeful and even started giving information about his whereabouts to us," revealed a senior police officer who was involved in this morning's encounter.
"When they go to meet women, they go alone and we launch an operation then only," revealed a senior official.
In August, another terrorist, Abu Dujana of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, was killed when he was visiting a young woman. In that case too, his jilted lover had informed the police about his coordinates.
