Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Dec 14: Since the abrogation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019, petrol bomb attacks have been on rise in the summer capital of Srinagar, putting the security agencies especially the police on the tenterhooks.
Official sources in police said in the last few weeks alone around half a dozen petrol bomb attacks have taken place in the city of Srinagar. The sources in police said the attacks have taken place in areas including Saraf Kadal, Bohri Kadal, Rajauri Kadal, Khanyar and Nowhatta localities.
A number of security force personnel and civilians were wounded in such attacks. Officials said the use of petrol bombs was an alarming trend as such incidents have been on rise.
He, however, said use of use of petrol bombs hints that militants were running short of ammunition or were unable to bring the same into the summer capital.
Sources said the police have inputs the militants could be using little kids to inform them about the movement of security forces to target them.
Sources said in the wake of such attacks, the police have asked the petrol pump owners not to sell the fuel in open containers.
"We are keeping watch if anyone is selling petrol in containers and that is something which has to be checked," said an official.
It was reliably learnt that the police have asked the civil administration to issue a formal public advisory in this regard such that petrol pumps refrain from selling the fuel beyond refueling of vehicles.
A senior police official said in the recent past, till December 3, atleast five youth have been arrested from Srinagar in connection with such attacks on security forces.
"We are taking measures to ensure that to such attacks are repeated in future but we need public support as well," the official said.
