The point man in the Kashmir valley

Saeed's point man on the Indian side of Kashmir is Zia-ur Rehman Lakhvi alias Chachaji.

Lakhvi is the Lashkar supreme commander in Kashmir. He normally operates out of the Anantnag area in south Kashmir and keeps crossing the Line of Control using the difficult terrain to dodge the Indian Army.

Lashkar terrorists are experts at finding gaps along the LoC. As soon as fences are erected along the border these terrorists find low-cost ways to overcome hurdles created by the costly fencing.

Lakhvi and some Lashkar operatives also use the Nepal route. People who have met Lakhvi say, "He kills without remorse. He is an Inter Services Intelligence-trained Kashmiri working in India with great success."
