    Militants attack CISF jawans in Srinagar; one dead

    ===============================================================================


    Why present the half report?

    The could not retaliate because they were not carrying fire arms while on-duty there.

    This is similar to the incident where 5 CRPF jawans were killed by militants near a school ground where they had assembled and were not carrying arms and could not retaliate.

    Those CRPF jawans were not carrying arms on duty under request by the state govt. who were more concerned about 'visibility of police presence' and not about the life of jawans on duty.

    Anyways RIP to the brave jawan and wish early recovery to the injured.

    Acc. Times Now report the jawans left their weapons in the vehicle as they got down in the market to buy fish.
    But they were wearing BPJ's at the time.

    Yes, there is a possibility of that happening.
    I was wondering why were CISF deployed there, who are generally there to guard Industrial and high value institutional areas and buildings.

    But, one thing is clear that they could not retaliate because they had no fire arms with them at that moment.

    mate BPJ or no BPJ a 7.62mm bullet fired from point blank range will always have fatal impact on the victim.plus the BPJs issued to the CAPF are customised to stop a 7.62mm bullet fired 10 metres away from an AK series assault rifle.so if they are fired within this 10m range the BPJ won't be able to stop the bullet from piercing the metal plate inside the BPJ pocket.
    this is precise reason why the Home Ministry have issued orders for more than 59,000 level-3 BPJs which are made of of strong nylon and kevlar materials for the C.A.P.F.these BPJs will offer more resistance to an incoming 5.56/7.62mm and will have soft inner pads to protect the victim from any internal injury.secondly,these BPJs will be extremely lightweight hence the personnel wearing them wiwon't be cowed down by the bulkiness(the problem that they face at present).

    Srinagar encounter ends, militant manages to escape

    If true, This is serious security lapse. Why was a cordon not placed around the area 24/7 ???

    I want to know one thing: why the fook are these guys called militants?

    Why so much political correction? IS using the term terrorists a sin? Will it hurt some vote bank? And if yes, then who is it?
