India Deploys Heavy Contingent of Paramilitary Troops in Kashmir Valley

India has deployed a heavy contingent of paramilitary troops to further reinforce its security presence in Jammu and Kashmir days after a suicide attack in the region’s Pulwama district killed at least 44 troopers.

Russia Ready To Support India Against Cross-Border Terrorism From Pakistan

New Delhi authorised and airlifted at least 100 paramilitary companies to the zone following the detention of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chief Yasin Malik on Friday and the arrests of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) workers in the latest crackdown against the resistance leadership.

According to the Hindustan Times, a considerable build-up of security forces was being witnessed across Kashmir after the Pulwama incident. The banned group Jaish-e-Muhammad group had reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack but New Delhi blamed Islamabad and threatened a retaliatory attack.

In response to India’s allegations, Prime Minister Imran Khan had promised to conduct an investigation if New Delhi provided actionable evidence. He also warned that Pakistan would ‘retaliate’ if attacked.

Indian forces in the valley were placed on high alert following the Pulwama attack. The move was termed a ‘well-designed conspiracy to pave way for further uncertainty in the region’ by the religious party.

“During the intervening night of 22-23 February, police and other forces agencies launched mass arrest drive and raided many houses in the valley [IoK] wherein dozens of its central and district level leaders have been arrested,” claimed JI in a statement.

The party added, “Those detained included JI Chief Dr Abdul Hamid Fayaz, party spokesperson Advocate Zahid Ali, former secretary general Ghulam Qadir Lone and dozens more.” Earlier this week, the Indian government had withdrawn the security cover provided to Kashmiri leaders in the valley.
