JAMMU - Nineteen-year-old Rukhsana, who killed a Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Abu Osama in September this year, will be awarded Rs.2.5 lakh and a job with the Jammu and Kashmir Police for her bravery, authorities said Tuesday.
Director General of Police Kuldeep Khoda made the announcement at a police function in the border district headquarters of Rajouri.
He said a job will also be given to Rukhsana’s younger brother Aijaz and her uncle who had assisted her in killing the terrorist.
Rukhsana shot to the limelight when on Sep 27 she killed LeT terrorist Osama, who had barged into her house in Rajouri district, 180 km north of Jammu.
She had earlier turned down the offer of a contractual job of Rs.3,000 per month. Rukhsana will now be recruited in the police on a permanent basis.
