Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh on Monday said that while the state is on the path to recovery, Pakistan sponsored terrorist organisations have been forcing the residents to not follow their daily chores.
As per a news report, Singh said that terrorist organisations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Hizbul Mujahideen have been coercing the people by forcing them to shut down shops and petrol pumps. “But pumps are open and we have ensured that shops are open wherever people want to open them,” he added.
Singh asserted that police have arrested several groups who were coercing the residents.
“They are doing so on behalf of Pakistan. They are being chased everywhere; we carried out two successful operations, one in Baramulla where one was killed and another terrorist was captured. A group working with Jaish-e-Mohammed was apprehended in Sopore yesterday. They were printing and pasting posters threatening people at various places. They are associates of terrorists, they were working on behalf of three local terrorists from Sopore,” he further added.
Informing about the capturing a notorious group from South Kashmir, Singh said it was a part of the infiltrating groups from across the border. He further said that their details will be released once the interrogation is over. Singh was speaking to the media in over a month after the abrogation of Article 370.
Singh blamed the Pakistani army and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for their vicious attempt to infiltrate terrorists into India and said, “Pak agencies especially ISI and Pak Army have been very active, they’ve brought several terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC) and have been making attempts to push them across.”
Frustrated by the Indian government’s unexpected move on Article 370, Pakistan army has resorted to ceasefire violations in an attempt to fuel unrest in the valley by pushing armed terrorists across the Indian side. “Our troops have been able to thwart many such attempts,” he added.
