The police are ascertaining if the two militants killed in Bragpora encounter on July 17 were involved in the Amarnath yatra attack or not. The two Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorists killed in the encounter have been identified as Jibran and Saad.
The attack on the Amarnath yatra was both shocking and surprising. Many in the security establishment say that the terrorist outfits had always spoken about an attack, but had stopped short of attacking the yatra. Then what changed and why did the Lashkar-e-Tayiba go ahead with this attack at the cost of losing local support. There is a sense of desperation in this attack. While the targeting of the police officers in Kashmir were a message to the force not to provide intelligence, the yatra strike was clearly aimed at establishing the Islamic ideology in the Valley.
In a major breakthrough the Jammu and Kashmir Special Investigation Team has arrested a policeman in connection with the Amarnath yatra terror attack. The SIT is also questioning a ruling PDP legislator in connection with the case.
