It is also reported that these Lashkar operatives were also attempting to extort money from affluent businessmen in North Kashmir, in a bid to revive their outfit in the region in the aftermath of abrogation of Article 370 which had made it increasingly difficult for them to secure funds for smooth functioning.

In the wake of revocation of Article 370, there has been heightened activity from the terrorists across the border in Pakistan to stoke unrest in the Valley, while the number of local terrorists active in the state has dramatically come down. Asserting that the situation in Kashmir is rapidly coming back to normal, JK governor’s advisor, Farooq Khan said on Sunday that the number of active terrorists in Kashmir has come down to 150-200 from several thousand earlier.
