SRINAGAR: The number of active terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir has fallen to 300 and that of local terrorists to double-digits, top army and police officials said Tuesday, attributing the decline largely to the improved security situation in the aftermath of the August 2019 abrogation Article 370 that gave the region special status.
General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (Northern Command) Lieutenant General Upendera Dwivedi estimated the number at 300 and offered a break-up. “There are 82 foreign and 53 local terrorists active in J&K. What is worrisome is there are almost 170 unidentified terrorists,” Dwivedi said at a presser in Poonch. Sources said the total number of terrorists was at least double the current level of 300 before 2019.
In Baramulla, J&K police chief Dilbagh Singh stressed the decline in local terrorists while asserting the “miniscule” number of foreign terrorists were being tracked down. “As far as terrorists is concerned, the number of active local terrorists has been brought to just double-digits,” Singh said.
Lieutenant General Dwivedi echoed the view on the crackdown but warned that around 160 terrorists were sitting on “launch pads” across the border, waiting to be pushed in.
Lt-Gen Dwivedi said the security scenario in the UT had seen a “big change” after the scrapping of Article 370 on August 5, 2019, with peace and development gaining speed and civil administration occupying primacy. DGP Singh shared the assessment, pointing out for instance that north Kashmir was badly affected by terrorism earlier but at present “this place is almost peaceful”.
The police chief flagged “hybrid” terrorists as a new challenge, saying handlers across the border had been luring young local boys and giving them weapons and targets. “Hybrids” are unlisted radicalised people who carry out terrorist strikes and slip back into their routine lives. “We have so far this year busted over 100 modules of hybrid terrorists,” Singh said.
In this context, Lt-Gen Dwivedi offered numbers on local terrorist recruitments — 35 per cent youths below 20 and the rest 65 per cent between 20 and 30.
