J&K Police scours south Kashmir to track JeM militants
RAIDS IN SOUTH KASHMIR ARE A PREEMPTIVE MEASURE TO TRACK CONTACTS OF THE THREE TERRORISTS BEHIND THE ATTACK ON SUNJUWAN ARMY CAMP
SRINAGAR: Crack teams of the Jammu and Kashmir Police have fanned out across south Kashmir to trace the contacts of the three Jaish-e-Mohammed militants, who carried out a suicide attack on the Sunjuwan Army camp in Jammu, officials said.
A counter-offensive against the Pakistan-based terror group became imperative after intelligence reports suggested that its cadres entered the Valley last year and were planning more suicide attacks on security forces, the officials said.
The raids at various places in south Kashmir were being carried out as a pre-emptive measure to track overground sympathisers, including the local contacts of the three terrorists — Qari Mushtaq alias Chotu, Mohammed Adil alias Irfan and Mohammed Khalid alias Rashid.
All three were based in Pulwama in south Kashmir for the last year, the officials said, citing intelligence reports and JeM’s claims on various social media platforms, including Facebook and Whatsapp.
