Securtiy tightened along LOC in Kashmir
Nowshehra (Jammu and Kashmir): Security tightened along the Line of Control (LoC), ANI reported on Monday, 10th October 2016. This action was taken by army after a soldier and a policeman were injured on Monday as security forces battled two to four guerrillas trapped in a government complex in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.
A police officer said the heavily armed militants entered the Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI) in Pampore town in the morning and began firing at security forces.
The multi-storey building is located on the banks of the Jhelum river, some 12 km from the Srinagar city centre.
In another report ANI said that according to sources in Ministry of Home Affairs, more than 250 LeT & Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists have infiltrated into Kashmir valley, and they infiltrated before the surgical strikes.
Indian Express in similar report said that Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin has visited terrorist training camps along the LoC with Pakistan Army and ISI officials in a bid to encourage militants to infiltrate before the onset of winter and step up violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
Salahuddin’s recent movement has caused concern in the government as renewed attempts are being made from across the border to make up for the “lull” in terrorism after 2009 by pushing militants across the border before ,an official said.
Nearly 110 terrorists had infiltrated into the border state in 2009 through 413 infiltration attempts,in which 93 terrorists were killed.
