Rukshana Kausar was popularly known for shooting a Le T terrorist at her residence in Jammu and Kashmir. Kausar home was located at Rajouri in Shahdra Sharief which was 20 miles away from the lines between Indian forces and Pakistani forces. Her place is close to dense forest where often the Lashkar-e-Taiba group kept it as a hiding place and would demand food and stay in the nearby villages. On September 29th 2009, three Pakistani militants came to her house in seek of food and place to stay. They forced Noor Mohammad who was Kausar’s father to offer them food and a place to stay but her father refused to obey to their words. Due to this, the terrorist got angry and attacked his father. Kausar who was hiding under her bed rushed and attacked the man using a sword. As he was collapsed she started firing at him with the AK-47. The other two militants escaped with wounds as they were afraid of the Kausar rude and violent behavior.
Kausar and her family also faced the revenge attack performed by the terrorists on October 31st 2009 in which their house was fired several times but it was a failure as no one was available in the house. Her family was moved to a government quarter which had a high police security. Following that incident again on November 10th, 2009 the security force detected a bomb near her house and later they defused it by the bomb squads.
