2-year-old infant among 4 injured in terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore district, to be shifted to Delhi AIIMS

Srinagar District Magistrate Shahid Choudhary confirmed that efforts are being made to arrange an air ambulance to shift the 2-year-old girl to Delhi for advanced medical treatment

Four members of a family, including a 2-year-old infant, were injured after terrorists opened fire at a fruit trader’s house in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore district on Friday.

The attack is being seen as the result of challenging the terrorists’ warning to keep the shop shut as a mark of protest against centre’s move to end special status to the state under Article 370, police said. The terrorists, by carrying out such attacks, attempt to instil fear among the people and disrupt peace in the Valley.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police terming it as a “merciless act of terrorism” confirmed that the terrorists barged into Hamidullah Rather’s house at Dangerpura in the north Kashmir district as they were upset that he ran his business despite warnings.

According to reports, though the condition of the other member’s of the family was said to be stable, the 2-year-old girl (Asma) remains critical.

Srinagar District Magistrate Shahid Choudhary confirmed that efforts are being made to arrange an air ambulance to shift the 2-year-old girl to Delhi for advanced medical treatment.

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval has advised the authorities to take Asma to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi for further treatment, ANI reported.

According to intelligence officials, Pakistan is trying to push terrorists into the Kashmir Valley to disrupt peace in the Valley. Pakistan has been left humiliated and seething after India’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

There have been reports that Jaish-e-Mohammed trained terrorists from various camps in Pakistan have been instructed to collaborate with the Pakistan Army elements along with the forward posts and BAT (Border Action Team) to renew their attempts to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir and fuel armed rebellion against the Indian Armed Forces in the Valley.

Recently, it was reported that the government sources further reveal that the activities of terrorists based out of PoK have intensified as they are planning to carry out suicide attacks at multiple locations in J&K.

The intel reports have said that local terror groups such as Hizbul Mujahideen have been instructed by Pakistan based terror commanders to co-ordinate and collaborate with Pakistan based terror organisations to plant IEDs in South Kashmir and Srinagar in future. Highly trained cadres of JeM from its Peshawar camps are identified to carry out IED attacks on the Indian Armed Forces in Sopore and other South Kashmir towns. Earlier this year in February, a terrorist trained by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed had driven an explosive-laden SUV on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama claiming lives of 40 CRPF soldiers.
