New Delhi, Aug 05: It has been a year since the Indian Parliament took a historic decision to abrogate Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The abrogation was met with criticism and praise, but more importantly the security forces have largely managed to stabilise the situation.
The protests, stone pelting and more importantly recruitments into terror groups are all down, a top official in the security establishment tells OneIndia.
New Delhi, June 11: The security forces have attained immense success this year in eliminating terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
The data compiled by the forces says that in the encounters between April 1 and June 10, 68 terrorists including those of foreign origin have been gunned own. The highest number of terrorists to be killed at from the Hizbul Mujahideen. 35 of them from the Hizbul have been killed during this period.
Since the decision to abrogate Article 370 was taken, the number of terror related incidents in Jammu and Kashmir have come down. The data also reveals that due to a concerted effort by security forces, 157 terrorists have been killed.
Even as questions are being raised by many curious about the logic behind the abrogation of Article 370, there is data to prove that backs of terrorists have been broken.
Another key decision that was taken was with regard to bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh into two Union Territories. This ensured that the entire control of the administration and especially the law and mechanism was under the Union Government.
