Kashmir witnessed only two anti-militancy operations since August 5
Reports of fresh infiltration yet another challenge for security forces

Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 19: Kashmir has witnessed only two anti-militancy operations since August 5 when authorities imposed restrictions in the Valley. Two encounters took place in North Kashmir's Baramulla and Sopore areas during the past 45 days.
"All the law enforcing agencies at present are engaged in maintaining law and order as the government is making all possible efforts to ensure that no civilian casualty takes place," an analyst told Early Times.
However, the media reports suggest that Pakistan has succeeded in infiltrating nearly 60 terrorists through dormant routes during the past one and a half months.
The analyst said, "It looks like that Pakistan is in no mood to let the people of Kashmir live in peace. The infiltration attempts during the past 45 days have increased manifold and the terrorists who are already in the Valley are threatening the people to stay away from their work."
He said, "The security forces will have to restart the operations against terrorists without any more delay. If they (terrorists) get a free hand then there is a bleak possibility about normalcy returning to the Valley soon."
Media reports state that during recent meeting to ascertain the number of successful and unsuccessful infiltration bids along the Line of Control, the Army representatives presented the host of evidence collected by the various agencies about infiltration by terrorists in higher reaches of Gurez, Machhil and Gulmarg sectors of Kashmir region and Poonch and Rajouri areas in Jammu region. There are reports about terrorists infiltrating through Gulmarg route and then moving to South Kashmir's Pulwama district. There are even reports about one group of terrorists moving into central Kashmir's Budgam district. "Another group is believed to have infiltrated through Gurez sector under the cover of heavy artillery firing," the media reports claimed.
An observer said, "Security agencies are well aware about the nefarious designs of the terrorists and in coming days there is every possibility about security forces launching massive anti-militancy operation in the sensitive areas of the Valley. There is no chance about security forces allowing the terrorists to regroup so that they could create fear and unleash terror."
He said, "Pakistan is committing a big mistake by sending in terrorists into the Valley as the Indian forces are prepared to launch a final assault on terror camps and launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Last warning has already been served to the neighbouring country. If it continues to support terrorists it will disappear from the world map."
