In the wake of Pakistan backed terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen (HM)‘s appointment of 26-years-old Saifullah Mir aka Ghazi Haider as the successor to now dead Riyaz Naikoo, head of the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) Lt Gen KJS Dhillon took to Twitter, Asian News International (ANI).
Lt Gen Dhillon, who had previously served as the 15 Corps Commander in Srinagar which is responsible for all counter-terrorist and counter-infiltration operations across the Kashmir Valley, tweeted, "Kitne Ghazi Aaye, Kitne Ghazi Gaye."
Lt Gen Dhillon was the Commander of 15 Corps in Srinagar when the tragic Pulwama suicide bombing attack took place which had led to the demise of over forty jawans of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). He is known to have played a vital role in the conduction of many successful operations by the security forces which led to killing on several terrorist leaders.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that Ghazi Haider is a symbolic name of Saifullah Mir, the new man in charge of HM's operations in the Kashmir Valley, wherein Ghazi stands for 'Islamic Warrior' and Haider stands for 'Brave'.
