SRINAGAR, MAY 03: A chilling footage has emerged online in which Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Sameer Tiger could be seen firing at the government forces from the roof of a house during a gunfight in Drubgam village of Pulwama on Monday.
Tiger, whose real name was Sameer Ahmad Bhat, could be seen coming out in the open after the forces sprinkle gasoline on the house in which he was trapped.
Sameer fires at the forces, but is shot dead eventually. An army major was also wounded in the firefight.
The militant commander was on the list of wanted militants in south Kashmir. He is believed to have joined Hizb ul Mujahideen after dropping from school when he was just 14.
