Highest Cases Of Militancy, Cross-Border Shelling Witnessed In Jammu & Kashmir This April



April is turning into a horrific month for Kashmir. COVID-19 and the battle between militants and armed forces have drastically escalated killing the soldiers, civilians and scores of militants.

Intensified Cross-Border Shelling By Indian Army Linked To Anger Over Gulf Criticism: Pakistan

In the last 24 hours, there have been three separate attacks on the Indian defence forces in which three CRPF troops were injured. Today, two militants and a ‘militant associate’ were killed in an encounter with the security forces in Goripora area of Awantipora in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district, the J&K police said.

The pre-dawn operation kicked into action after the police received intelligence bout the presence of militants, a police officer said. Security forces then launched a cordon-and-search operation in Goripora village but the operation soon turned into an encounter as the militants fired at the armed forces, forcing the latter to retaliate.

In another separate incident, two militants were killed in a gunfight with security forces at Herpora village of Frisal in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district Friday evening. The J&K police officer was abducted from his house and later the security forces launched a manhunt to rescue the officer. Two police officers were injured in the process and the militants were eliminated.

“The militants were ambushed by a joint team of police and army’s 1-RR near Herpora village while they were ferrying a cop, they had earlier abducted, in their vehicle,” Inspector General of Police Kashmir, Vijay Kumar confirmed.

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, J&K has witnessed 33 incidents in 2020 in which 79 people have been killed so far. Out of these, 57 were militants and the rest members of the armed forces and civilians. The revised numbers show more than 60 militants killed as per latest reports from South Asia Terrorism Portal.

Earlier on Friday, militants attacked a CRPF camp in Kashmir’s Budgam district. The assailants threw a grenade and opened fire Dooniwari village camp of the paramilitary force. 3 CRPF jawan received minor injures in the attack.

“Militants hurled a grenade towards the camp and then fired from automatic weapons. The fire was retaliated, forcing the militants to flee,” an officer told a news agency.

According to local media reports, the injured have been identified as Inspector Mayesh Chand, constable G. Prakesh Rao and constable K. Sirnu, according to local media reports. After the attack, the area was sealed to trace the attackers.

Stone Pelting, Militancy & Funerals Have No End in Kashmir?

This is one of many attacks on CRPF jawans in recent times. Four CRPF men have been killed in two separate militant attacks in Kashmir as reported by EurAsian Times.  On April 7, a CRPF man was killed in Anantnag district and last week, militants attacked a CRPF check-post in Sopore in north Kashmir that left three CRPF men dead and two other injured.

Kashmir has been in complete turmoil this month. Militant activities are on the rise and so is the cross border shelling and infiltration. The Indian armed forces have also been on their toes and have been quick to flush out militants and retaliate to Pakistani ceasefire violations along the volatile Line of Control.
