Early Times Report

JAMMU, Sept 22: Jammu and Kashmir policemen, who have been at the forefront of wiping out Pakistan sponsored terrorism from the state, have become soft targets for the terrorists.
"The terrorists have been barging into the houses of policemen and targeting them. They happen to target them when they are on leave and are unarmed.
As they know it very well that they cannot take them on in the battlefield. Besides targeting policemen, terrorists have been harassing their family members just to intimidate them," said an official.
During the past nine months terrorists have killed more than 30 policemen.
They have ransacked scores of the residential houses of the policemen and are making all possible attempts to tell the people to boycott the families of policemen.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that during the past few months videos about terrorists issuing threats to policemen, especially the low rung cops, have gone viral on the social media. "All this is happening in south Kashmir, which has emerged as a hot bed of terrorism, in the Valley," he said.
The analyst was of the opinion that government should give a freehand to the security agencies to act against the terrorist sympathizers as targeting policemen is not possible without their help. "It has been observed whenever any policeman visits his home on the leave information is passed on to the terrorists. There is a network which has been activated to keep a track of the movement of the policemen and this is a serious issue," the analyst added.
Soon after three policemen were abducted from their homes in Shopian district on Friday and later killed, videos of SPOs claiming that they have resigned from the police department went viral on social media.
"These videos were spread to create fear among the other policemen who are working on the ground and have been instrumental in taking the terrorists head on," said an official.
He said that J&K police have broken the back of the terrorists operating in Kashmir and the militancy is south Kashmir is at its fag end.
"Now these terrorists are trying to create fear psychosis to save themselves from getting killed.
They know it very well that their days are numbered and their elimination is inevitable," the official added.
He said that entire police department shares the grief of the family members of the martyred policemen and assures them that killers won't be spared.
It may be recalled that Jammu and Kashmir government recently raised the ex-gratia relief for the SPOs killed in the line of duty to Rs 30 lakhs and for other ranks to Rs 70 lakhs.
