Farmer's daughter disarms terrorist and shoots him dead with his own AK47

Rukhsana Kausar attacked a terrorist with an axe and then shot him dead with his own AK47, after the terrorists barged into her home and attacked her family. Turns out the terrorist was a wanted commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group with a ~$8000 bounty on his head. Telegraph

Rukhsana Kausar, 21, was with her parents and brother in Jammu and Kashmir when three gunmen, believed to be Pakistani militants, forced their way in and demanded food and beds for the night.[...]

When they forced their way into Miss Kausar’s home, her father Noor Mohammad refused their demands and was attacked.

His daughter was hiding under a bed when she heard him crying as the gunmen thrashed him with sticks. According to police, she ran towards her father’s attacker and struck him with an axe. As he collapsed, she snatched his AK47 and shot him dead.

She also shot and wounded another militant as he made his escape.

Police have hailed the woman’s bravery.

They said she would be nominated for the president’s gallantry award.

She may also receive a £4,000 reward if, as police believe, the dead terrorist is confirmed as Uzafa Shah, a wanted Pakistani LeT commander who had been active in the area for the past four years.
