From carrying out operations based on intelligence to squeezing out funds for terrorists, the government has come a long way in bringing the fall of Hizbul Mujahideen. The terror outfit is now on the verge of extinction
The Director General of the Jammu and Kashmir Police, Dilbag Singh made a significant statement related to the Hizbul Mujahideen.
Singh said that the Hizbul Mujahideen is on the verge of being completely wiped out in South Kashmir, the stronghold of nearly all terrorist organisations in the Valley. The statement came in the backdrop of three terrorists associated with the outfit being killed in an encounter that was carried out at the Shopian district of South Kashmir. A week ago, the security forces had also gunned down the district commander of the Hizbul, Harun Hafaz at Doda in a gunfight.
New Delhi, Sep 10: The Jammu and Kashmir police on Monday arrested 8 terrorists associated with the Lashkar-e-Tayiba for Sopore in South Kashmir.
While the police are investigating whether this module had a role in killing civilians in the area, sources tell OneIndia that initial findings reveal they were part of a propaganda module of the outfit.
With Governor’s rule being imposed in Jammu and Kashmir, one could expect a hardline policy to flush out the terrorists and make every possible effort to restore peace. The South of Kashmir in particular has been a major area for concern for the security agencies where terrorism has flourished over the past few years.
There is more proof that has come in which suggests that the Islamic State is trying to set up shop in Kashmir. Investigators who have been checking into chat details have found that some youth had been chatting with handlers in Syria and Iraq. The problem is not immense as of now. It has been found that youth in small pockets are in touch with handlers of the ISIS. Investigations found that the problem was higher in South Kashmir, Sopore in North Kashmir, Prang and Lar in Central Kashmir as well as Reasi, Kishtawar and Doda areas of Jammu region
Terrorists in Kashmir have been releasing a lot of videos these days. However, here is an interesting video that was released just as they were cordoned off by security forces.
The video was shot at a house in Pahalgam in South Kashmir on January 15 just before the three terrorists were killed by security forces.
Militant videos, especially ones featuring the Hizbul Mujahideen, appear to be the new trend.
In the last three months at least five videos have surfaced showing Hizbul terrorists, either prancing in the snow, discussing attacks with their Lashkar-e-Tayiba partners or having discussions in a jungle in South Kashmir.
