Strategy changed: No food item or medicines found
Srinagar terror attack

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Feb 14: The manner in which Fidayeens launched terror attack in Srinagar's Karan Nagar area on February 12 has surprised many a security officer. What has baffled them is that security forces have not recovered any food item or medicines from the "rucksacks of the two militants".
Both the terrorists were liquidated on Tuesday after a 30-hour-long fierce gun-battle with security forces. They have found "slightly odd" the no recovery of any food item or medicine. The fidayeen attack appeared to have been launched from Pakistan.
"We have recovered two AK-47 rifles and eight magazines. As per initial information, no food item or medicines have been recovered," CRPF I-G (Srinagar) Ravideep Sahi today said. Sources close to security officers said: "One of the militants is believed to be from Pakistan; details of the other are still being ascertained". However, Jammu & Kashmir Police has claimed that both were Lashkar operatives.
It may be recalled that the encounter had started early Monday morning after the two fidayeens made an attempt to attack a CRPF camp. "Food and medicines not being found on them is slightly odd, as fidayeen (mercenaries) generally carry them for long-haul fighting where they are looking to take hostages, or get holed up," a security officer was quoted as saying in Srinagar. He was sharing the details on the encounter, which took place a day after Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists launched terror attack on the very vital Sunjuwan Army Camp in Jammu city, which has left 6 jawans, one father of a jawan and three terrorists dead.
According to the CRPF sources, "it took a long time to kill the militants, even though they were holed up in an under-construction building, because there are many residential units in the congested neighbourhood". "We were not in a position to fire very large-area weapons to bring down the building, as we would have jeopardized other buildings in the area," a senior CRPF officer was quoted as saying.
Commenting on the Karan Nagar fidayeen attack, CRPF Director General R R Bhatnagar has said: "Most importantly, we prevented a much bigger incident by preventing them from entering our camp and limiting their movement in a building. After that it was only a 'matter of time' before they were killed".
All this shows that fidayeens and their masters have changed their strategy and tactics making security officers say that the non-recovery of food items or medicines appeared "odd" to them.
