    Three more youths shunned the path of militancy in Kashmir on Tuesday, according to the police.

    “Another three young boys in the Valley came back home in response to the call of their families. God bless them,” said Director General of Police, J&K, S.P. Vaid.

    A total of 10 armed militants have shunned the path of violence to return home in the past few months.

    “The return of youths is a big success for the people. It’s Pakistan that is creating trouble here,” said Mr. Vaid.

    Besides those giving up arms, according to the police, “67 youths were counselled against joining militancy in 2017.”

    The police attribute the change of heart among youths in militant ranks to recruit Majid Khan, 22, returning home in November last year.

    Pursuing a new strategy, the police have decided to hide the identities of those who return “to allow them to resume normal life without any media trial or hassles.”

    Security agencies in Kashmir are actively pursing a soft policy towards local militants by offering them a surrender option even during encounters. Last year, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti doubled the reward money for those who get militants to surrender.

    The Pakistani Army on Friday resorted to shelling and also fired from small arms and automatic weapons along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.

    The Indian Army retaliated strongly.

    “Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked firing of small arms and automatic weapons and also shelling from late this afternoon in Shahpur sector of Poonch district along the LoC,” a police officer said.

    Indian troops replied back, he said.

    On the night of January 3, Pakistan troops had resorted to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatic weapons and mortars along the LoC in Rajouri sector.

    The same morning, Pakistan Rangers violated the ceasefire and resorted to sniper fire on a forward post along the International Border (IB) in Hiranagar sector of Samba district killing BSF Head Constable RP Hazra.

    Four policemen were killed in a powerful Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exposion on Saturday, which had been planted by suspected militants, in Sopore, Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir. The explosion took place at Gole Market, where separatists were observing a bandh. There was heavy deployment of police and paramilitary forces in the town at the time of the incident, to maintain normalcy and prevent any protests. According to sources, militants had planted the bomb inside the market after sensing heavy presence of forces today. The wreath laying ceremony for the victims will be held today.

    J-K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter to condemn the incident. “Pained to hear that four policeman have been killed in an IED explosion in Sopore,” she tweeted. ”My deepest condolences to their families.”


    Separatists are observing a shutdown in Sopore today, to protest the killing of over 50 civilians on this day in 1993.

    On January 6, 1993, militants had shot dead a BSF jawan of 94th Battalion, Border Security Force (BSF)and snatched his rifle in Sopore town. later shot dead 50 persons and set 300 shops afire.

    In the incident more than 500 shops and nearly 25 houses were also destroyed in the fire. The incident was preceded by an alleged militant attack on a BSF patrol in the town on the same day, in which a jawan was killed.

    The locals had registered an FIR , alleging that unidentified militants, who were hiding in houses, had opened fire on troops and the forces retaliated in self-defence. The investigation into the case was handed over to the CBI. It filed a closure report in the case after more than 20 years. The survivors later filed a protest petition in the court and demanded an investigation into the case.

    Srinagar, January 5
    Twenty years after the Sopore ‘massacre’, which left nearly 50 civilians dead, residents of the apple town are still waiting for the justice. “Whenever we remember what happened on January 6, 1993, it sends shivers down to our spines,” said Sopore Traders Federation president Mohammad Ashraf Ganai, who himself had a narrow escape on that day.


    During the Winter Session of Parliament, the government had stated that there were 341 terror incidents in the state between November 1, 2016 and October 31, 2017. There were 311 incidents in the same period the previous year. Mos (Home) Hansraj Ahir had said the overall security situation in J&K has improved, and attributed it to demonetisation.

    India must conduct something decisive but quick multiple cross border raids in PoK....and targets must be not enemy soldiers rather commanders and costly military installations...

    P Chidambaram quoted statistics to say that the number of civilians and terrorists killed in Jammu and Kashmir had almost doubled from 28 to 57 and from 110 to 218 from 2014 to 2017 respectively.

    Congress leader P Chidambaram on Sunday attacked the Modi government’s Kashmir policy, saying its “hard, muscular, militaristic” approach had failed to end militancy in the troubled state.

    “It was claimed that the hard, muscular, militaristic approach will put an end to infiltration and militancy. Has it?” the former home minister tweeted.

    Chidambaram quoted statistics to say that the number of civilians and terrorists killed in Jammu and Kashmir had almost doubled from 28 to 57 and from 110 to 218 from 2014 to 2017 respectively.

    The number of security forces killed had also shot up from 47 to 83 in this period.

    “If you are one of those who had thought that the hard, muscular, militaristic approach of the government should be given a chance ... you may change your view,” Chidambaram said.

    The Congress leader said that wisdom lay in actively working towards a political solution to the issues of Jammu and Kashmir, where a separatist campaign raging since 1989 has claimed thousands of lives.

    “Both AB Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh will be remembered for the diligent efforts to find a solution to the issue.”

    Separately, another Congress leader and former Central minister, Kapil Sibal, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rhetoric over Jammu and Kashmir had come apart.

    “Soldiers and policemen martyred almost daily. Will government explain? When will be stop losing lives?” he asked in a tweet.

    The twin criticism came a day after a militant-triggered explosion killed four policemen in Sopore in Jammu and Kashmir.

    Mannan Wani, a Kashmiri research scholar at the prestigious Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), who had been missing for the past few days, is suspected to have joined terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen (HM).

    A post on the social media, that showed Mannan, who had been pursuing Ph.D in Geology at AMU, with an AK 47, claimed that he joined the HM on Friday, according to the police sources here.

    Aligarh police chief Rajesh Pandey said on Monday that the room at the hostel, where Mannan had been living, was raided and articles, including some literature and other documents had been recovered from there.

    ''We have seized some articles from his (Mannan)...they are being examined,'' Pandey said in Aligarh.

    He said that Mannan had been present at the AMU campus till January 2, 2017. ''He had not been since then,'' he added. AMU authorities said that Mannan had been suspended till the investigation is pending.

    The varsity officials said that Mannan was a brilliant scholar and that they had no idea how was he radicalised. His friends too expressed surprise and said that he never betrayed any signs that he could join the ranks of terrorists.

    Mannan, who hailed from Kupwara in Jammu & Kashmir, had been enrolled at the AMU five years back and had earlier completed M.Phil degree from there. His family had lodged a missing report on Sunday, the police said.

    Police sources here said that the cops were also trying to ascertain if Mannan was in touch with some others since his disappearance.

    A militant was gunned down by the security forces in an encounter in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Tuesday morning while a 22-year-old civilian succumbed to bullet injuries sustained in the ensuing protests, officials said.

    While a press release issued by the police said “one Pakistan based terrorist was killed”, the army and state DGP SP Vaid said in separate tweets that “two militants” had been gunned down in the encounter with Kokernag police and security forces in Pehlipora village of Larnoo area.

    The killed militant has been identified as Farhan Ahmad Wani, 18, of Kulgam district. An INSAS rifle and ammunitions were recovered from the encounter site, police said.


    Police also said in its press release that the Kokernag police, along with personnel of 19RR and CRPF, launched a cordon and search operation during which “militants hiding in the area fired upon the joint search team”. “The fire was retaliated, ensuing an encounter,” the note said.

    As protests erupted in Wani’s native Khudwani village, Khalid Dar, 22, received a bullet injury as a law and order situation developed, police control room, Kulgam, said. Dar later succumbed to his injuries.


    Tuesday’s killings come three days after a powerful explosion in Sopore town in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district killed four policemen. The Pakistan based terrorists had claimed responsibility for the attack. The JeM had also claimed a fidayeen attack in which five personnel of the CRPF were killed in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on December 31. Three militants were also killed in the attack.

    Police, meanwhile, arrested two militants and busted an over ground worker module by arresting nine of its members in Sopore.

    Police said the arrested men were “trying to recruit innocent youth in the ranks of different banned terrorist outfits”.

    “A search was launched by the police along with Marine Commandos (MARCOS) and the CRPF on Sunday. The militants were hiding near a school. They tried to open fire on the party, but were overpowered,” the SSP added.

    Meanwhile, arms and ammunition were also recovered from the militants.

    The OGWs belong to both Pakistan based group . The arrested OGWs are Tajamul Islam Shah, Syed Tamiz-u-din, Ghulam Nabi Mir, Mudasir Ahmad Mir, Saleem Ahmad Beigh, Muzamil Ahmad Ganie , Showket Ahmad Kaboo all residents of the Sopore area, while Irshad Ahmad Lone of Seer village in Tral and Humaiz of Kupwara.

    Rajouri, January 10

    A civilian working as porter with an Army unit deployed in Rajouri district received splinter injuries when an abandoned mine exploded on a foot track near the Line of Control in the Keri sector.

    The porter identified as Khalid Hussain, a resident of Kailesh under the Rajouri police station, was provided immediate medical aid at the nearest Army health centre and later was shifted to the Army hospital in Rajouri. Sources said the porter was going from the base camp at Bharat Gala to a forward post when he inadvertently put his foot on an abandoned mine and it exploded instantly injuring him seriously.

    Khalid Hussain was working as a porter with Sikh Li unit for the last many months. In the month of August last year, another porter working with this unit, Safeer Ahmed Khan, a resident of Mendhar (Poonch district), went missing and was never traced.

    The Rajouri police are investigating but the Army reportedly informed the police that he might have crossed over to PoK while his family members have expressed their apprehension about foul play.

    On August 10, porter Mohammed Sharief of Keri (Thathyali) was injured in the same sector in an abandoned mine blast and was hospitalised. — OC

    • Authorities imposed restrictions in parts of the city on Saturday to prevent separatist-called protests against civilian killings during gunfights between security forces and militants.

      Prohibitory orders were imposed in Rainawari, Khanyar, Nowhatta, MRGunj and Safakadal in old Srinagar and Maisuma and Kralkhud in uptown areas by the Srinagar District Magistrate.

      “Essential services, government employees, bank staff, students appearing for examinations and the invigilation staff for such exams are exempted from the restrictions,” the police said.

      The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) -- a separatist conglomerate headed by Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik called for valley-wide shutdown and protests.


      Authorities placed Umer Farooq under house arrest in his Nigeen residence on the outskirts, while Geelani continued to remain under house arrest in his uptown Hyderpora residence.

      Heavy deployments of police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have been made to maintain law and order at sensitive places in the city.

    The Jaish-e-Mohammad militants were killed at Dalunja area.

    Security forces killed at least five militants trying to cross the Line of Control into Kashmir Valley in Uri Sector on Monday.

    According to an Army spokesperson, five militants have been killed so far in Uri as the operation continues.

    Preliminary reports suggest it was a major bid to fan out militants into north Kashmir. Director General of Police, J&K, S.P Vaid said, "The incident took place at Duljana Uri. Search is on for the sixth body," he said.

    DGP Vaid said the group belonged to Jaish-e-Muhammad. "The suicidal group was jointly killed in an operation by the police, army and CRPF," he said.

    Kupwara, January 15

    Four suspected overground workers (OGWs), who were allegedly radicalising youths in Kupwara district to join militant groups, were arrested on Tuesday, the police said today.

    A senior police officer said that two youths, who had been radicalised by the OGWs and were all set to join militant ranks, were stopped in the nick of time.

    “They (OGWs) were actively involved in radicalising youth to join militant groups. Following a tip-off, a special police team last week nabbed them from various locations,” Shamsher Hussian, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Kupwara, told reporters here.

    “The OGWs were planning to send the radicalised youths for arms training to south Kashmir and across the Line of Control. During sustained interrogation, they admitted that their handlers in south Kashmir had assured them and their families full financial support for radicalising the youths towards militancy,” the SSP said.

    The police officer did not identify the two youths saved from turning to militancy.

    The OGWs were identified as Rashid Bashir Pir, Zakir Amin Pir, Saif-ud-din Khatana and Manzoor Ahmad Najar, all residents of Kupwara district. — OC

    The Jammu and Kashmir government has provided jobs on compassionate grounds to 13 people who had suffered pellet-gun injuries during the violence in the Valley in 2016, it said Wednesday. Replying to a clubbed question from Ali Mohammad Dar and Showkat Hussain Ganaie in the Legislative Council, Revenue Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri said the 13 people were provided jobs in various government departments.

    Veeri told the Council that another 22 pellet-gun victims were provided financial assistance from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. He said a committee was formed under the chairmanship of the divisional commissioner, Kashmir, to identify people who were permanently or partially disabled during the violence in the Valley during the nearly five-month violence between July and November.

    “In the first phase, the committee recommended 54 cases for grant of ex-gratia that has been sanctioned by the government, while as 10 more cases which were recommended in second phase are under examination,” he added. Violent protests had rocked the Valley after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8 in 2016.
