Oct 8, 2015- End of Altaf Ahmed Dar’s tryst with terror in Jammu and Kashmir.  One of Kashmir's most active and competent counter-insurgency officers, Inspector Altaf Ahmad Dar , who was in his late 30s, was killed in an encounter with militants in north Kashmir's Bandipora area. 
He was tracking some militants who were on their way to receive their accomplices, who had recently infiltrated into the state, disclosed a top police official. Senior police officers describe him as "a man who single handedly finished the dreaded Hizbul Mujahideen".
The Jammu and Kashmir Police described his killing as a huge loss to police force.
"He was brilliant. One of the best among us. It is a huge and irreparable loss. Very difficult to overcome this shock," said a senior superintendent of police known for his counter insurgency operations. Since 2004, all Hizbul Mujahideen top commanders, including their chiefs, were killed or arrested in operations carried out by him. Officials say he was responsible for neutralising and arrest of top commanders of Hizbul Mujahideen including Mohammad Gaznavi, Gazi Misbahudin, Dr Dawood, who is now in NIA custody, Rayees Kachur, Pervez Mushraff, Junaid-ul-Islam and many others. "Countless successful operations are to his credit," said an official.
He was also responsible for tracking and arresting separatist leader Masarat Alam during 2010 summer uprising.
Police officers describe him as one-man army and say his killing would affect whole operation network of police. They said he was number one on the hit list of militants. 
Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed visited the police control room where he offered his condolences to the slain officer. Director General of Police, K Rajendra Kumar, said "In today's operation intelligence was generated by him and he was personally leading the operation." Kumar described him as exemplary police officer with heart of lion and intelligence of exceptional nature. He said he had passion for hard work and led relentless operations against militants in which a number of top militants were killed during the last decade.
