Amarnath Yatra: Intelligence Agencies Suspect Major Terror Attacks in Kashmir

Published

on

The Amarnath Yatra in Kashmir is under threats of terror attacks as per the latest intelligence reports. The terror organisation, Lashkar-e-Taiba which is responsible for terrorism in Kashmir has received a large consignment of AK-47 and grenades which could be used to attack the Amarnath Yatra. This report was published by Economic Times on Tuesday. 

Intelligence inputs suggest that the Pakistan sponsored terror outfit, Lashkar-e-Taiba has received a massive consignment of arms and ammunition. This consignment also includes anti-thermal jackets besides AK-47 guns and grenades. Inputs suggest that the terror outfit is likely to attack the Amarnath Yatra.
As per the data shared by the security forces, there are about 210 terrorists operating in Kashmir as the present. Most of them are based in South Kashmir. Now the security forces have to be very alert and have to rely on intelligence inputs to keep a check on the militant activities in Kashmir and make sure that the Amarnath Yatra is carried out peacefully. The Amarnath Yatra will go on till the month of August.
The PDP-BJP coalition in Jammu and Kashmir fell owning to differences within the coalition pertaining to stances on some key issues. Jammu and Kashmir is under the governor’s rule since May 19, 2018, and the Indian Army has intensified its operations in the valley to counter terrorism in Kashmir.
In the last 10 days, the security forces have carried about 20 operations in the valley and have killed 9 militants. The operations have also left a few civilians injured or even dead. Earlier, during Ramadan, the Mehbooba Mufti-led state government has urged the centre to observe a ceasefire in the valley and let Eid celebrations be peaceful.
But the ceasefire failed miserably as the local militants magnified offences against the security forces. There were ambushes, grenade attacks and rifle snatchings. Those two weeks saw more than 10 grenade attacks leaving more than 50 wounded. This tally includes 39 civilians and 17 security personnel. The PDP went really soft on the local militants and the ceasefire turned out to be a big blunder. The ceasefire ended with Shujaat Bukhari’s death. Shujaat Bukhari was the editor of Rising Kashmir and who was killed in broad daylight along with two of his bodyguards.
