Security agencies on alert to identify terror sympathizers amid repeated attacks
Kathua Terror Attack

Early Times Report

Jammu, July 9: The repeated terror attacks in “peaceful” areas of Jammu province have authenticated the reports that Pakistan-based terror mentors have revived Over Ground Workers (OGWs) in different districts.
The areas, that were projected as terrorism free, have been witnessing repeated terror attacks. Earlier incidents of terrorism were confined only to the twin border districts of Poonch and Rajouri but now terrorists have re-started their activities in peaceful districts like Reasi, Udhampur, and more importantly Kathua.
There is an urgent need to take decisive action against terror sympathizers.
It is an undeniable fact that some locals, driven by fear, financial incentives, or ideological alignment, are aiding terrorists by providing them with food, shelter, and transportation.
These individuals must be identified by local law enforcement and held accountable. Stringent measures should be applied to deal with them effectively. Additionally, we must ensure that no infiltration occurs across the international border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC), as successful infiltrations have led to these attacks.
The Indian Army is responsible for guarding the 744-km LoC, while the Border Security Force (BSF) oversees the 198-km IB. Both forces must implement additional measures to strengthen the anti-infiltration obstacle system at the borders.
Recently Director General of Police (DGP) R R Swain s

id that locals found supporting foreign terrorists will face consequences under the Enemy Agents Ordinance, which carries stricter penalties than the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
On June 13, Swain asserted that they were preparing a robust response to foreign terrorists in the Jammu region. “A war has been thrust upon us, but rest assured, we will eliminate every terrorist in J&K.”
Security experts attribute the recent surge in attacks, including the one in Kathua, to several factors. These include the upcoming assembly elections, terrorist infiltration via the International Border and Line of Control, local support, and troop redeployment.
The curve of terror is expanding, and a deliberate strategy aims to counter the narrative of peace in Jammu and Kashmir following the revocation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019.
Despite significant improvements in Kashmir, Pakistan, and China conspire to undermine the perception of peace and development. Their focus has shifted to the Jammu region, where troop deployment has decreased over the past 15 years due to prevailing peace.
Jammu’s vulnerability to terror attacks stems from its hilly and forested terrain, inadequate road networks, and weakened army and paramilitary forces. While security forces concentrate on counter-insurgency operations in the Kashmir Valley and manning the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh, Pakistan has adjusted its strategy to destabilize Jammu.
