New Delhi, Aug 24: The operation in which terrorist Abbas Sheikh the military commander of The Resistance Front (TRF) was gunned down was a massive success for the security forces.
Abbas was active in Jammu and Kashmir for nearly two decades and his killing is a major load of the security agencies. His list of crimes are never ending. Sheikh was previously associated with the Hizbul Mujahideen Mujahideen and later took over the TRF, which is a proxy of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
Officials tell OneIndia that he was one of the most respected among the terrorists and was seen as a spiritual leader. Due to this aspect he was able o recruit with ease as a result of which the TRF had become an extremely dangerous force. His killing is a big deal as it deals a blow not only to the capabilities of the TRF, but to the ideology of the outfit as well. Sheikh had in fact given the agencies the slip on six occasions after breaking the cordon during gunfights.
