Attacks puncture claims about Srinagar being militancy free
J&K Police caught 'napping' as militants strike twice in 2-days

Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 18: Two grenade attacks in 2-days in Srinagar city have put a question mark over the claims of Jammu and Kashmir Police that city is militancy free and there are no militants active in Srinagar.
On Thursday militants hurled a grenade at police party near Zero Bridge at Rajbagh in civil lines area and on Friday militants appeared in Lal Chowk and attacked a CRPF vehicle with a grenade.
Sources said that two grenade attacks in 2-days have rattled the security establishment. "It's clear that militants have infiltrated into Srinagar city and can carry a major strike ahead of the Republic Day or on the same day," they added.
An official said that the security forces wiping out the top militant commanders in the recent encounters have frustrated the militant handlers sitting across the Line of Control. "They (terror bosses) have directed their agents to intensify their activities to register their presence on the ground."
The official said that "we can't say that Srinagar is militancy free." "Militants are very much present in the Valley. They travel from north and south Kashmir carry out the attacks and return to their hideouts. But we are keeping a track and would ensure that Republic Day functions pass off peacefully," he added.
An analyst said, "J&K Police cannot just play down the presence of militants by saying that are floating and keep on shifting their bases from north, south and central Kashmir. It means that militants can strike as per their will. One fails to understand that if there are so many nakas and check points in the city then how come militants manage to enter the city and then return."
He said, "J&K Police should revisit the security plan which has been put at place to ensure that Republic Day passes off peacefully."
Insiders revealed that intelligence agencies have already sent an alert to J&K Police to remain alert as the militants are looking for an opportunity to strike. Besides Kashmir, sources said, the "militant threat" is also looming large over Jammu as the Governor Satya Pal Malik is scheduled to preside over the main function in the winter capital. "Security agencies cannot sit back and relax and claim that grenade attacks in Srinagar were just a routine affair. They have to be on toes to ensure that militants remain away from Jammu city also as the winter capital is believed to be on the people sitting across the LoC.
