EARLY TIMES REPORT

SRINAGAR, Jan 21: As the security forces achieved major success in Jammu and Kashmir against militants in 2019, particularly in the last one month, Operations against militants in valley will be further intensified in the days to come.
Sources said that the number of militants killed in 2018-19 was around 270 which is higher than 2016- 2017.

The number reduced to 119 in 2011. Then in 2012, 84 ultras were killed, 100 in 2013, 110 (2014), 113 (2015), 165 (2016) and 218 last year, the sources said.
They said the higher number of militant casualties in 2018- 19 and now in 2020 was because of pinpoint intelligence and meticulous operations by the security agencies.
However, the successes notwithstanding, the year gone by was one of the bloodiest for the security forces as they suffered the highest number of fatalities than in any other year in the past decade.

Sources said that the MHA has emphasized upon the officers to maintain pressure on militants and exhorting all ranks to remain vigilant to maintain law and order and security of the area. The MHA has directed for “well organised and pro-active” operations against the terrorists, particularly in upper reaches, to increase the sense of security among the masses,” sources maintained.
Sources said that the MHA has also Complimented the efforts of police and other security agencies for maintaining law and order in the valley. “It was due to close coordination and synergy among the security forces that recent success was achieved against the militants,” the MHA has said.
Meanwhile sources said that the special forces of the Army, Navy and Air Force have been deployed in Kashmir valley to carry out combined counter-terrorist operations.
The three special forces, namely the Army’s Para (Special Forces), Navy’s Marine Commandos (MARCOS) and Indian Air Force’s Garuds are being deployed in Kashmir valley.
