The se­cu­rity forces have killed more than 230 mil­i­tants in Kash­mir Val­ley so far this year even as there has been a drop in the num­ber of civil­ians in­jured in stone- pelt­ing re­lated in­ci­dents, sources said. An­other 240 mil­i­tants are still ac­tive in the Val­ley.

While 51 mil­i­tants were killed be­tween June 25 and Septem­ber 14, an­other 85 ter­ror­ists were gunned down be­tween Septem­ber 15 and De­cem­ber 5, largely on ac­count of the ag­gres­sive counter- of­fen­sive pol­icy adopted by the se­cu­rity forces in the Val­ley.

Though 232 mil­i­tants have been killed so far this year, as many as 240 mil­i­tants, in­clud­ing for­eign­ers, are still ac­tive in the Kash­mir Val­ley whom the se­cu­rity forces are track­ing closely,

sources added.

Be­tween June 25 and Septem­ber 14 this year, eight peo­ple along with se­cu­rity per­son­nel were killed, 216 were in­jured in dif­fer­ent op­er­a­tions that also in­cludes se­cu­rity per­son­nel.

In the last 80 days be­tween Septem­ber 15 and De­cem­ber 5, only two peo­ple were killed while 170 sus­tained in­juries mainly in in­ci­dents of stone- pelt­ing, se­cu­rity of­fi­cials said.
