It was a risky visit to a girlfriend that trapped the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) commander and Kashmir terrorist Umer Khalid. Sources say that Khalid, the senior JeM commander, was shot in Ladoora in North Kashmir by security forces when he was on his way to meet one of his many girlfriends.

Having been identified by the security forces, Khalid was asked to surrender. Instead the terrorist, along with his aides, started firing at the jawans. The encounter intensified and more troops were rushed in to get Khalid.
An injured Khalid managed to find his way out, but only briefly and was soon cordoned off and shot dead.
A senior police official later let the media know that Khalid was kind of a Casanova, who had not one but several girlfriends:
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.
Intelligence officers and police believe that it was Khalid who had laid the master plan as well as helped to execute last week’s attack on the Border Security Force base camp adjoining the Srinagar airport.
