Lambu had entered Kashmir in the month of December 2018. He was also seen roaming in the Tral area of Pulwama district. This has been a heavily terror-affected area, 46 km from Srinagar. The associates of this terrorist call Lambu because of his six and a half feet length. He is also called by the moniker Fauji Baba.
Lambu was sent by Jaish to strengthen its weakening network in Kashmir, prepare IEDs and recruit new boys. Apart from this, he was brainwashing the youth to prepare fidayeen (suicide attackers). Lambu was Jaish’s IED expert.
