Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 21: Even as seven civilians lost lives in terror strikes on the first day of the new year in the frontier district of Rajauri, the twin blasts in Narwal on Saturday have taken the toll of terror strikes in Jammu region to three in almost three weeks.
Whereas at least seven persons were wounded in Narwal area of Jammu city on January 21, two blasts rocked the marketplace along the highway in the morning hours.
Sources close to the investigations said explosives were planted in two vehicles in the busy market place. While the first blast occurred at around 11:00 AM, the second one exploded twenty minutes later.
The attack came barely a week after Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited J&K to review security preparedness in the wake of Rajauri attack.
Terrorists in Army disguise had stormed a village in Rajauri and opened fire on the poor villagers after checking their identity cards on the evening of January 1. Whereas four persons were killed on the spot, two persons including a kid died when IED planted by the terrorists exploded in the affected village. One of the wounded subsequently succumbed to injuries.
Prior to it, an encounter had broken out in Sidhra area of Jammu in which four terrorists were killed in the wee hour gunfight on December 28.
Nationalist Jammu region continues to be on the radar of the terror groups, more so since the abrogation of the so called special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.
Whereas drone and infiltrations including that from tunnels conspired by Pakistan based terror groups have only intensified since, the terror strikes are witnessing an unusual spike in Jammu region.
A senior official told the Early Times on the condition of anonymity that Pakistan-based Lashkar operatives were believed to be behind the attacks.
Meanwhile a red-alert has been sounded across Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of the terror strikes.
