    There would have been some more.

    I wish all of them should have been shot!

    Sir, that area is saturated with SF and very little movement is possible for mikes. Even the locals are pro-army, so militant movement is recd very fast.

    Mendhar is not really Punch.

    It is detached by the river.

    The Balnoi gap is ideal for inflilt.

    they are terrorists and not militants, this fact has to be properly projected and highlighted by our media to world.

    Is the so called "Aman Ki Asha" still on track or it is time to close the chapter on this? I would like it to be closed and move forces along the borders so that we can send our troops deep into their territory or carry out air strikes on the camps.

    The barrel of the gun speak.

    If by dugar you mean Gujjars and bakarwals, they are being used since they alone know the tracks up in the mountains. They are coerced with threats and with money.

    In the Jammu and Punch area, beyond Sundarbani, the population is Muslim majority.

    There are some Sikhs there too, especially in the plains of Punch. They are basically the business class.
