Beyond Govt's ceasefire bogey: Militants continue to target unarmed civilians, Police

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 15: While some parties are asking the Centre to announce truce during Ramadhan and Amarnath yatra, the militants are continuously target the unarmed political workers and policemen.
Militants on Tuesday targeted policemen who were regulating the traffic in Anantnag. One police personnel succumbed to injuries while another was injured.
"Such attacks are a clear indication that militants are in no mood to stop violence during Ramadhan and Amarnath Yatra. It clearly is a strong message for those who want that security forces should stop anti-militancy operations for the next few months" said a prominent citizen of Anantnag.
This month alone, 23 people including three personnel of security forces and eight civilians have been killed so far.
The silence maintained by the separatists has not gone well with netizens who took to social media to expose their double standards. "Where are those who want that security forces should stop anti-militancy operations and ask Centre for ceasefire during Ramdhan. Then why was this poor policeman killed," Shahid wrote on Facebook.
A police official said that it was a fresh strategy from militants to target unarmed policemen. "It is to create fear among policemen and their families. For the last few years, hundreds of militants have been killed. Militants can't defeat policemen and now they are targeting unarmed policemen and their families, to pressurize them not to participate in operations," the official said.
Several people associated with the NC and the PDP have been killed in Pulwama and Shopian districts of south Kashmir.
"The attacks and threats have created a panic among all workers of mainstream parties and policemen and their families in south Kashmir," Sharif Ahmad said, a political worker, who wished not to mention the name of his village. His family, he says is worried about his security. "My family wants me to quit the party which I refused. I am an ardent supporter of the PDP. I hope that attacks on political activists will end soon," he said.
A PDP leader of Shopian said the political workers were worried for their safety.
