We wanted to eliminate the entire top leadership of JeM operating in Kashmir, have been ‘very successful’: Indian Army

18 terrorists have been killed in the last 21 days. 14 of them were from Jaish-e-Mohammad, says Lt Gen KJS Dhillon, GOC, Chinar Corps.

In a joint press conference by the Indian Army, CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir Police, Lt Gen Dhillion revealed details of the Tral encounter undertaken by them to eliminate Mudassir Ahmed Khan, the main conspirator of the Pulwama attack. In the aftermath of the Pulwama attack, Indian Army, CRPF and JKP had launched joint operation to neutralise Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists active in the Valley.

According to Lt Gen Dhillon, 18 terrorists have been eliminated in the last 21 days. Of those 18, 6 were commanders of terrorist organisations. Out of 18, 10 neutralised terrorists were locals while 8 of them were of Pakistani origin. 14 of these terrorists belonged to the Jaish-e-Muhammad group. The principal conspirator of the Pulwama attack, JeM commander Mudassir Ahmed Khan was neutralised by the Armed Forces in an encounter in Tral last night.

The GOC Chinar Corps, Lt Gen Dhillon also stated that their aim was to eliminate the top leadership of JeM active in Jammu and Kashmir and they have been very successful in achieving it. He further added that those who motivated Mudassir will not be spared either.

The Indian Army sources reveal that in the first 70 days of 2019, the security forces have eliminated 44 terrorists, most of whom belonged to the proscribed Jaish-e-Muhammad terrorist group. The sources also added that as against 1629 ceasefire violations from Pakistan in 2018, this year 478 violations have already taken place.

Pakistan has been carrying out incessant ceasefire violations with heavy artillery along the LoC in several sectors after the Indian air strike over JeM’s Balakot camp.
