He was a Pakistani Sikh Separatist in the United Kingdom. He died in Sandwell Hospital, Birmingham due to Stage-4 blood cancer on 15 June 2023. His cancer was sudden because a few months prior in March 2023 he actively took part in violent protests against Indian Embassy.

He had another name Ranjodh Singh (possibly fake).

His father, Kulwant Singh Khukrana, was a known Khalistan Liberation Front terrorist and was instrumental in radicalization in India. His father was gunned down by security forces in 1991. His mother too was related to another Khalistani Liberation Front terrorist, Gurjant Singh Budhsingwala.

6. Afghanistan

Aijaz Ahmed Ahangar

Aijaz was a key terrorist associated with the Islamic State Khorasan and was found dead in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. It is believed that he was killed by the Taliban Government.

Who are the Unknown Gunmen? An Intelligent Guess

The unknown gunmen might be the political or criminal rivals of the people who have been killed.

I have came to the conclusion after watching several podcasts and previous modus operandi of Indian intelligence in the Kashmir valley.

This is because almost all of those killed had a good exposure to the world of crime including drugs, weapons, terror, smuggling, guns for hire, etc. It would have been very easy for someone to tip off their rival gangs or criminals to do the job instead of hiring a gunmen through Indian Govt officials like the US suggests.
