Rukhsana Kauser with the gun she snatched from one of the militants.

Tre bevæbnede mænd, der menes at være pakistanske terrorister, troede de skulle stjæle mad og husly, men sådan gik det ikke.

De tre mænd angreb familien Kausar fra Rajouriprovinsen, 32 kilometer fra våbenhvilegrænsen mellem Indien og Pakistan. Familiens far ville ikke lukke dem ind, så han blev slået med kæppe af de tre angribere. Det fik hans datter, Rukhsana, til at reagere, det skriver

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.

Supt Shafqat Watali said Miss Kausar’s reaction was “a rude shock” for the militants. “Normally they get king-like treatment but this was totally unexpected,” he said.

Miss Kausar said she had never fired an assault rifle before but had seen it in films and could not stand by while her father was being hurt. “I couldn’t bear my father’s humiliation. If I’d failed to kill him, they would have killed us,” she said.

Det lokale politi roser pigens mod, og hun fik omkring 32.000 kroner i dusør. Den dræbte var en efterlyst terrorist.
