Nineteen-year-old Rukhsana, who killed a Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Abu Osama in September this year, will be awarded Rs.2.5 lakh and a job with the Jammu and Kashmir Police for her bravery, authorities said on Tuesday.
Rukhsana Kausar, who shot to fame
after she gunned down a militant in Jammu and Kashmir, today
visited the Nariman House and paid homage to those killed at
the Jewish centre during the 26/11 terror attacks.
An Improvised Explosive Device was recovered by security forces near the house of Rukhsana, who shot into limelight for killing an LeT militant, in Rajouri district, less than a fortnight after militants attacked her residence.
J&K Gov N N Vohra has written to CM Omar Abdullah urging him to recommend the name of Rukhsana, who shot into limelight after killing a Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist, for National Bravery Award, officials said here Thursday.
Rukhsana, the teenager who had killed a LeT terrorist last Sunday, and her family have shifted to safer environs in Jammu and Kashmir`s Rajouri town after police confirmed that the rebel group has vowed to take revenge.
