Indian Army Eliminated 200 Kashmiri Militants in 2018; Maximum in South Kashmir

Published

on

The Indian army neutralized two militants in north Kashmir’s Kupwara region on Tuesday, taking the total militants killed to 200 in 2018. The maximum number of militants were killed in encounters with the Indian Army in the volatile and hotbed of rebellion – South Kashmir.

In its ongoing crackdown on terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian security forces have killed 200 Pakistan-sponsored terrorists and militants so far. While most of the terrorists/militants belonged to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the highest number were gunned down in the volatile South Kashmir region.

South Kashmir witnessed the killings of 109 militants and terrorists while in north Kashmir it was 45. Among the major operations was the killing of Abu Mateen and Abu Hamaas in March 2018, which was followed by that of Sameer Ahmad Bhat in Shopian on April 1

Over the next few months, top militant commanders like Saddam Paddar, Abu Qasim and Abu Maviya were killed in May, June and July respectively. Last month witnessed the deaths of 27 militants, which included Mannan Wani, Mehrajudin Bangroo and Sabzar Ahmad Sofi.

The forces adopted various measures such as tighter security arrangements for the highly sensitive Amarnath Yatra, a pause in the operations during the Holy month of Ramadan. The Indian Army had also appealed to the militants and their families to ask them to give up guns and return to the mainstream.
