Story Of Major Mohit Sharma : When Mohit Sharma Became Iftikar Bhatt
The book ‘India Most Fearless 2’ by Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh talks about how Major Mohit Sharma infiltrated the Islamic organization Hizbul Mujahideen and killed two ferocious terrorists.
Major carried out his operation at Shopian, 50 km from South Kashmir. Major first changed his name and look for this operation. They made their gestures like terrorists with a long beard and moustache. Then he came in contact with Abu Torara and Abu Sabzar through the name Iftikhar Bhatt.
Major then convinced Iftikhar Bhatt, both Hizbul militants, to say that his brother was killed by the Indian Army in 2001 and now he wants revenge by simply attacking the army. He told the terrorists that they wanted their help in this work. Major Sharma told both the terrorists that they had to attack the checkpoint of the army and for that, he had done the groundwork.
In this operation of Major Sharma, the terrorists asked him his identity several times. But he would say, “I need your help. I have to learn. ” terrorist Abu Torara asked him several times about his identity. But eventually, he falls into the trap of Major Sharma and agrees to help. The terrorists told him that he would remain underground for several weeks and would seek help for the terrorist attack. Somehow Major convinced him that he would not return home until he blew the checkpoint.
Both the terrorists made all arrangements in the days to come. Also called three terrorists from nearby villages. When Torara was doubted again, the Major said to him, “If there is any doubt about me, kill me.” Leaving the rifle with his hand, he said to the terrorists, “You can’t do this if you don’t believe me.” So you have no choice but to kill me now. ”
After hearing the Major’s talk, both the terrorists got confused. Major Mohit Sharma got a chance in this and went a little far and loaded his 9 mm pistol and killed both the terrorists.
