After the killing of civilians by terrorists in the valley, Inspector General (IG) Kashmir Vijay Kumar said on Thursday that the police had several clues about hybrid terrorists, while that steps were being taken in collaboration with the security forces to catch such features.
Speaking to ANI, Vijay Kumar said, “A total of 28 civilians will be killed by terrorists in 2021. Of the 28, five are members of the local Hindu and Sikh community and two are non-local Hindu workers.”
Due to the police action against IG Kashmir terrorists, their handlers have now changed their strategy and started targeting the public.
“As large numbers of terrorists were killed and their support structures destroyed, terrorist operators became frustrated and began to change their strategy and target civilians from minority communities, including unarmed police, politicians and women,” Kumar said.
IG Kashmir Jammu and Kashmir Police said that there are many traces of newly recruited terrorists.
“In all such cases, terrorists are using handguns. These acts are carried out by newly recruited terrorists or recruits. In some cases, OGWs have been found to be directly involved. The Jammu and Kashmir Police work hard and we identify all such part-time / hybrid terrorists. They will be dealt with severely. We have received many clues and are working on them. We have started operations with other security forces, “Mr Kumar said.
