Early Times Report

JAMMU, June 22: Intelligence agencies have reportedly warned of "attacks ahead of the Amarnath Yatra in Jammu & Kashmir". An analysis suggests that the "Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) have considerably stepped up activities in south Kashmir, especially in Shopian, Anantnag, Budgam, Kulgam and Pulwama and are using sleeper cells to mobilise potential attacks during the Amarnath Yatra, which starts from June 28".
This 20-page intelligence analysis has claimed a "steep rise in terrorism, violence and radicalism in Jammu & Kashmir". It warns of an "increase in potential attacks against security forces in the coming days and aggressive counter-terror operations are being planned to neutralise threats". According to a report based on credible inputs, "the intelligence analysis decoding chatter from across the border further observed that political activists could become soft targets for Pakistan-sponsored terrorists to disrupt peace and trigger chaos in the Valley".
"There is a possibility of terrorists sneaking into the hideouts along the national highway to regroup and carry out attacks," a source in the security establishment has claimed. "Preventing such attacks requires collective effort between law enforcement and intelligence units to effectively wipe out terrorists. Two back-to-back intelligence based operations in the first week of June in Machhil and Keran sector suggest JeM and LeT have intensified infiltration. We have launched focussed operations along the traditional infiltration route to foil terrorists as well as cordon-and-search operations in the areas suspected to be terrorist hideouts," the analysis has said and suggested.
Sources have said: "Security forces may also launch intense manhunts in Rampora, Baan, Yasoo, Furrah, Hawoora, Wanpoh and Panzath areas of Kulgam after intelligence inputs warned of concentration and movement of HM terrorists. Operations are also likely to be renewed in Heff Shirmal, Chak Chollan, Nagbal, Trenz and Zainapora after alerts about activities of HM and LeT terrorists". In addition, intelligence reports have suggested "redeployment of security forces in strength at suspected terrorist hideouts and creating synergy between various forces on the ground".
It is hoped that Jammu & Kashmir administration in collaboration with the Union Government would take all measures to defeat the plans of the enemies and ensure a smooth and peaceful Yatra.
