Militants on run, their handlers worried as security forces kill 17 in one week
Top commanders eliminated, sympathizers face heat

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 28: The "Operation All Out" against the militants in Kashmir has sent alarm bells ringing within the militant ranks and their handlers sitting across the Line of Control.
Sources told Early Times that with the onset of winter in Kashmir militants are moving towards the mainland and they are falling in their own trap. "During the past one week 17 militants, including the top commanders, have been eliminated. Many over ground workers have been arrested and militant sympathizers are on run," sources added.
They said the separatists active in the Valley too are in a tight spot as the noose has been tightened around them for arranging the funds for militancy related activities in the Valley. "Militants labeling people as informers and then killing them has not helped their cause. In many areas where these militants have been active people have turned against them and have stopped helping them. The cold blooded murders committed by the militants in south Kashmir have proved it beyond doubt that they derive sadistic pleasure by killing people and they do so at the instructions of their bosses sitting across the LoC," said a Kashmir watcher.
He said that security forces intensifying operations against militants has pushed the separatists on backfoot. "The Pak stooges who have thrived over hartal politics during all these years are finding no takers for their calls as people have realized the futility of strikes and the violence," he added.
An official said, "Militancy would not have assumed such an alarming proportion had the erstwhile political regime taken the inputs of the intelligence agencies seriously. The previous PDP-BJP regime in J&K used to insist that the militants should be caught alive and had even raised the incentive for laying down the arms to Rs 6 lakh."
He said, "The wrong decisions which were taken in the past led to militancy getting flared up. The situation has changed during the last five months as the security forces have been given a free hand to deal with the militants and their supporters."
Another official said that security agencies are tracking the movement of militants and the recent killings have rattled the militant groups. "We have got inputs that local militants who had joined the militant groups in the recent past want to return to mainstream but their bosses sitting across the LoC have warned them of dire consequences if they make any such attempt," the official added.
He said that the militants are only left with two options either they have to surrender or they would be killed. "The ones who pushed them to take up arms on the name of Azadi and Pakistan are themselves looking for an exit route," the official added.
