What happened in the
Indian ExpressIn a report published on the Jammu and Kashmir Police IG Vijay Kumar said that after last January, the anti-terror campaign has been carried out under a new strategy. Instead of relying more on technology, we have used human intelligence more. During the action on terrorists, care was taken that no harm should be done to the common people. During the last few months, we have targeted the ringleaders of almost every major terrorist organization in Jammu and Kashmir. This has shocked them a lot.
This is the reason that recruitment in these organizations has reduced considerably compared to 6 months ago. According to government figures, 46 of the 89 terrorists were related to Hizbul Mujahideen. It is worth noting that the Hizbul Mujahideen gives the maximum terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
Apart from Riyaz Naiku, the leader of many terrorist organizations, the biggest terrorists to be killed this year are Hyder (Lashkar-e-Taiba), Qari Yasin (Jaish-e-Muhammad Commander), Burhan Koka (Ansar Gajwat-ul-Hind). Significantly, 29 terrorists were killed in the last 6 months of 2019, before the initial 6 months of this year. According to a Kashmiri police officer, after the abolition of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019, there was a problem in getting information about the hideouts of the terrorists due to the long time of internet and other restrictions of communication. But after the conditions started recovering from January, a massive campaign was launched against the terrorists.
