SRINAGAR: Two unarmed policemen have been shot lifeless by two Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in Srinagar’s Barzulla space on Friday, whereas three Al-Badr terrorists have been killed in an encounter earlier within the day in south Kashmir’s Shopian whilst two of their accomplices managed to flee, IGP Kashmir Range Vijay Kumar mentioned.
He added that Wednesday’s assault on the 22-year-old scion of Srinagar’s landmark Krishna Vaishno Dhaba, which left the youth critically injured, was carried out to instil concern amongst vacationers on a day when a 24-member European Union delegation was on a two-day go to to the Valley. During interrogation, the newly-recruited trio that carried out the strike confessed that The Resistance Front (TRF) commander Gazi had lured and tasked them with the crime.
Earlier, the little-known Muslim Janbaz Force — which the South Asia Terrorism Portal lists as a Pakistani outfit — had owned accountability for the strike in an announcement, claiming it was in retaliation to “outsiders” being allowed to settle in J&Okay below the brand new domicile guidelines.
On Friday’s assault in Srinagar, Kumar mentioned senior grade constable Mohammad Yousuf from Kupwara and constable Suhail Ahmed from Anantnag, have been “on a routine duty and at a shop to purchase something” in Baghat Chowk when, in response to eyewitnesses, the Lashkar duo brandished AK-47 rifles that they’d hid below their pherans (robes) and opened fireplace on the cops from behind. The injured policemen have been rushed to separate hospitals the place they succumbed throughout therapy.
Speaking on the wreath-laying ceremony of the slain constables at DPL Srinagar, the IGP mentioned that the Lashkar ultras — one in every of them from Pakistan and one other an area terrorist named Saqib — had been recognized and can be traced quickly. “We will go for a security review and plug the loopholes. Had the policemen carried weapons, they could have retaliated,” he mentioned, including nobody was detained or arrested but within the assault.
On the south Kashmir encounter, the IGP mentioned, “Late Thursday, security forces laid a cordon in Shopian’s Imam Sahab area acting on intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists there. Early Friday, contact was established with holed in ultras and in the ensuing fire exchange, three local Al-Badr terrorists were killed.” Two AK-47 rifles and a pistol have been recovered from the encounter web site.
About Wednesday’s dhaba assault, Kumar mentioned, “We acted swifty and constituted teams under the supervision of a DIG-rank officer that was headed by SP (south city). A civilian informed the SP that the attackers were riding a bike, following which we accessed CCTV footage and followed other inputs.”
A joint police staff from Srinagar and Anantnag subsequently arrested two youths concerned within the assault and seized the bike and pistol used within the crime. “During interrogation, they revealed third particular person was concerned within the assault, and we arrested him too. All three — two from Pampore and one other from Pulwama — have been newly-recruited terrorists and one in every of them was given pistol coaching in Pahalgam’s forest space,” the IGP mentioned.
TRF commander Gazi instructed them to assault Krishna Vaishno Dhaba, which is open even throughout strikes and all the time sees a rush of vacationers. “We have recorded their confession statement in a video to be produced before the court with the challan,” Kumar mentioned.
To a query on whether or not safety can be stepped up for the upcoming vacationer season, the IGP mentioned extra surveillance and deployment can be carried out in Srinagar’s busy areas and elsewhere. “Additional bunkers may be set up if need be. A close watch will be kept on elements who might attempt to disrupt peace. Frisking will be intensified,” he added.
