The government should maintain pressure on the terrorists and their supporters all the time as presently the situation is crucial with the start of Amarnath Yatra. The news coming in from different parts of the UT are indicative that already security forces are upbeat and have maintained pressure on those who want to vitiate peace. In this context, police has killed two LeT terrorists in a gunfight in Nawapora Mir Bazar area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district. The terrorists neutralized have been identified as categorized local terrorists of proscribed terror outfit LeT. As the operation site was very close to Amarnath Yatra route, it could be said that a major tragedy has been averted as the slain terrorists could have attacked the devotees. In the same context, the police along with security forces have arrested a LeT hybrid terrorist near Papchan area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district. He was intercepted at a checkpoint near Papchan following which incriminating materials and arms and ammunition including 3 AK-rifles, 10 Magazines, 380 rounds, 2KGs IED Explosive substance and 1 Chinese grenade were recovered from his possession. The way the security forces have intensified their operations, it seems that the end of terrorism is near. It is good that the security forces have adopted a multi-pronged strategy to counter terror regime on all fronts and the recent successes in eliminating number of terrorists including today’s encounter is the testimony to the fact that positive results have started coming out of the intensified efforts after the Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave free-hand to security forces to tackle terrorism on their own with all strategic help coming from the central government side like the additional companies of CAPFs for making Amarnath Yatra security foolproof and containing the menace of targeted killings which has lately spread fear psychosis among the people in the entire Union Territory of J&K. The responsibility on the security forces including the army is big as they have to take care of borders and the hinterland therefore people should cooperate with them in taming the terrorists and the violence mongers by acting as their ears and eyes and by providing all the required help as and when needed.
