A series of counter-terrorism operations are on-going in Kashmir, as of July 22nd.
Indian security forces launched several simultaneous operations against pro-Pakistani groups in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Law enforcement agencies, together with army units, blocked the city of Sopore and carried out a house-to-house search in search of hiding criminals. The operation is still on-going.
In the Badgam district, Indian special forces detained three members of the Hizb-Al-Mujahideen pro-Pakistani group.
The detainees were preparing attacks on the Indian security forces.
The police said incriminating materials, arms and ammunition, including 20 live rounds of AK-47, two detonators and 15 posters of Hizbul Mujahideen had been recovered from them.
On the July 18-19th weekend, three members of Hiz-Al-Mujahideen were killed by security forces.
In Jammu, Indian special services detained a financier of the Lashkare-Taiba group associated with Pakistani intelligence.
He and his accomplices attempted to smuggle about $2,000 into Kashmir.
The money was intended for the militants of the group, who were to carry out a series of terrorist attacks in the region.
In early July, the group’s militants killed the regional leader of India’s ruling party.
The killing of the regional leader of the ruling party of India “Bharatiya Janata Party” Vasim Bari was followed by a series of resignations of his fellow party members.
On July 11, directed by the Pakistani Interdepartmental Intelligence, Tehreek Ul-Mujahideen and Al-Badr groups issued an ultimatum to all members of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Jammu and Kashmir, which demanded that they either leave the ranks of this association or “face the consequences of the Wasim family.”
Meanwhile, the Indian special services managed to establish that the militants of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group, also supervised by the Pakistani Interdepartmental Intelligence Service, were behind the attack.
