107 persons killed in 103 days of 2018, three major incidents logged so far
restive South Kashmir lists maximum casualties.

Jammu, April 14, (Scoop News)-As many as 107 persons were killed in over past 103 days this year including 29 security personnel and 25 civilians in different terror related incidents in roiled Jammu and Kashmir, sources said.

Incidentally, the maximum of these casualties had taken place in south Kashmir districts of Shopian, Kulgan, Pulwama and Anantnag.

They said about 780 people including over 350 security men were also injured in clashes between stone lobbing civilians and security forces during these incidents.

The sources said, the year (2018) started with a suicide attack on Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Kashmir which claimed eight lives including five paramilitary personnel. Again, in January at least five armed intruders were eliminated while crossing Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector.

On February 10, another suicide attack took place at Sunjwan Army Camp in Jammu in which seven soldiers, one civilian and three terrorists were killed during nearly 96 hour long encounter.

During the entire month of March more than 26 terrorists and five security men were killed in different terror related incidents across the valley, the sources added.

The sources said on April 1 (Sunday), about a score of people including 13 terrorists, four civilians and three army soldiers were killed in at least three different encounters particularly in south Kashmir. They said the security forces followed textbook coordination. Two of the slain terrorists were reportedly involved in the killing of an army Lieutenant Umar Fayaz.

At Hajin in Bandipore district, terrorists abducted father and son for questioning, while father managed to escape, however, the decapitated body of the son was recovered a day later on the outskirts of town.

Reacting to April 1 incident, the chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti, lamented, “Every day it breaks my heart to see a wailing mother beckoning her son to return. Can we leave our accusations and counter accusations and put our heads together and save these young ones.”

Taking a dig on Ms Mufti, former chief minister, Omar Abdullah, said that she has seen her irrelevance to Kashmir politics.

Surprisingly, in Pakistan special prayers in absentia had been offered by the federal cabinet while paying tributes to 13 terrorists while calling them as “innocent civilians.”

Post April 1 operations, the valley observed complete shutdown for next three days on the separatist troika’s call bringing life to a grinding halt....
