10 security personnel lost their lives in 5 days
Situation in Kashmir grave

Early Times Report
Jammu, June 19: The situation in Kashmir is grave and at a time when all the preparations are being made by the authorities for the impending annual Amarnath Yatra. And the areas which are worst affected are South Kashmir's Anantnag and Pulwama, which have been witnessing terrorist attacks on a daily basis.
That the situation is grave could be seen from the fact that in the last five days, 10 security personnel, including five CRPF men, four army personnel including a Major rank officer Ketan Sharma of Meerut, and one Inspector of Jammu and Kashmir police sacrificed their lives in anti-terrorist operations.
The modus operandi of the terrorists too remained the same as they used Improvised Explosive device (IED) mounted on a vehicle to target the army personnel. The claim of the authorities that things were under control doesn't inspire confidence for obvious reasons.
The sudden spurt in terror-related activities in the Anantnag area has, on the one hand, become a cause of concern across the nation, and on the other hand, created a situation that has the potential of discouraging the devotees of Lord Shiva from visiting the holy shrine. This must not be allowed to happen to defeat the evil game plan of terrorists, local or otherwise.
It has become imperative for the authorities and the entire security grid to review its ground strategy and pattern of movement on the ground as terrorists could attempt to derail peace efforts by targeting pilgrims during the 46 days long annual Amarnath pilgrimage beginning July 1.
It is heartening to note that the central government has reportedly decided to deploy around 750 companies of the paramilitary forces for area domination of the entire yatra route to ensure peaceful conduct of the yatra. Equally commendable are the reports that the security forces are making elaborate arrangements at all the transit points, base camps and yatra route to ensure safety and security of pilgrims.
