New Delhi: Security forces had made a last-ditch attempt to get Abu Dujana to surrender, but the Lashkar-e-Taiba commander refused, following which he was gunned down in an encounter in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.

CNN-News18 has accessed the details of the phone conversation between Dujana and a security officer, during which the Lashkar terrorist can be heard claiming innocence, yet rejecting an offer to surrender and, for the first times, admits to leaving his parents behind in Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan for “jihad”.

Here’s a transcript of the phone call:

Security Officer: Why don't you surrender?

Abu Dujana: I won't surrender, have to die one day… today or tomorrow, it doesn't matter.

Security Officer: Leave everything, you know the situation now. It's a game.

Abu Dujana: I'm not here to play a game. I'm taking my own path.

Security Officer: You have married this girl…

Abu Dujana: I haven't married anyone. It's a lie.

Security Officer: Think about yourself. You have your parents…

Abu Dujana: I've left my parents.

Security Officer: You are not dying for them. You say yes, and I'll facilitate (your) surrender.

Abu Dujana: What else… how are you?

Security Officer: This is not the time to this. We are fine…

Abu Dujana: (laughs) Sometimes you are ahead, sometimes we are. You have caught us. Congratulations…

Security Officer: This is not jihad. You know that.

Abu Dujana: What can we do? Nothing can happen now.

Security Officer: Then surrender. You will only guide other people. Only then will this bloodshed end.

Abu Dujana: I'm not responsible for the bloodshed. You know that.

Security Officer: You are the main commander. You should tell people about the reality. Otherwise, Kashmiris will keep dying.

Abu Dujana: Okay. I will see…

Security Officer: You should think about it…

Dujana and his aide were gunned down by security forces on Tuesday. Security forces had zeroed-in on Dujana after his frequent visit to a particular village where he was believed to have married a girl.

Pakistani national Dujana was wanted for many attacks on security forces and political workers in south Kashmir. He was variously described as a category 'A++' militant by Army and police officials. Dujana carried a reward of Rs 10 lakh on his head.

According to a police spokesman, the slain militants were involved in grenade attacks on security forces at Kakapora. They were also involved in the killing of sarpanch Fayaz Ahmad Bhat earlier this year.

Dujana was a very close associate of Abdul Rehman alias Abu Qasim, the police spokesman said, adding that both were involved in an attack on a BSF convoy in Udhampur last year.
