Srinagar: Security forces intensify vigil after fresh violence

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Security forces were deployed in strength in parts of Srinagar on Sunday in the wake of fresh violence following death of a teenager, even as normal life remained affected elsewhere in the Valley for the 121st consecutive day due to separatist sponsored strike. “Adequate deployment of security forces has been made in parts of Srinagar, but there is no curfew in the city (here) or anywhere in Kashmir,” a police official said.He said security forces have been deployed in strength in some areas of the city to maintain law and order in the wake of yesterday’s violence following death of a 16-year-old boy Qaiser Sofi due to alleged poisoning. Sofi was reported missing on October 25 and found in an unconscious state in Shalimar area of the city six days later and hospitalised.However, local residents of the area alleged that the teen was force-fed some poisonous substance. Police have said an investigation is underway into the case registered under section 309 Ranbir Penal Code (attempt to suicide) at Nishat Police Station. Although there was very less movement of people and vehicular traffic in the areas in the old city, the civil lines areas of the summer capital, including the areas around the commercial hub of Lal Chowk, witnessed a fair amount of traffic as private cars and auto-rickshaws were seen plying, the official said.He said some shops were open in these areas along with the areas in the outskirts of the city, while many vendors set-up their stalls in the weekly flea market in the TRC Chowk-Batamaloo axis passing through Lal Chowk.However, most of the shops, fuel stations and other business establishments were shut elsewhere in the Valley but are expected to open in the evening as the separatists have announced a 15-hour relaxation in the strike from 4 PM onwards. The ongoing unrest in Kashmir, triggered by killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces in south Kashmir on July 8, has completed four months.The separatists, who are spearheading the ongoing agitation in the Valley, have been issuing weekly protest programmes. As many as 85 people, including two cops, have been killed and several thousand others injured in the ongoing unrest in the Valley. Around 5000 security forces personnel have also been injured in the clashes.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Delhi Police has arrested a murder convict from Mangolpuri area here, who after jumping parole from a Haryana jail killed three more persons and had a list of “18 people whom he planned to kill”.Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Yadav said 26-year-old Deepak Tomar was arrested by Crime Branch from near Mongolpuri railway station on October 13.He said Tomar committed his first murder in Rohtak for which he was convicted in 2008.He was lodged in Gurgaon’s Bhondsi jail from where he managed to get 21-day parole in July 2014 but didn’t return, Yadav said.After jumping the parole, Tomar joined his associates in committing a double-murder in Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh in 2015, he added.They fired 21 rounds with country-made pistols to kill Jitender and Anil of Ranbir gang in his native village Ramala, the JCP said, adding a cash reward of Rs 5,000 announced on his arrest.Again in September 2015, he and his accomplices allegedly killed Sohanveer in Baba Haridas Nagar area of Delhi.The murder was a revenge killing because Sohanveer had allegedly thrashed Deepak in Rohtak jail, the JCP said.He was also involved in robbing of a SUV from Nihal Vihar in Delhi in May 2015.G Ram Gopal Naik, who led the Crime Branch team which arrested Tomar, said he committed “most of the murders” while he was out on bail or on parole.”We have requested the court to not grant Deepak (Tomar) bail or parole since he has hatched most of the plans when he has got bail,” he said.During interrogation, he revealed that he was planning to commit 18 more murders and had a list of of people with whom he has had an enmity at his village, Naik added. “He is a person who doesn’t spare people who cross paths with him,” he said.A country-made weapon and three live cartridges have been recovered from him.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Author Chetan Bhagat took to Twitter to express his views about the surgical strike conducted by the Indian Army that killed 38 terrorists.

Heavy damages have been caused to terrorists and many of them have been killed.”Bhagat stated that one should neither be proud nor be ashamed about the strike since it was something that needed to be done to prove a point.

Uri terrorists cut fence at two places, belong to Lashkar-e-Toiba: Probe

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The four terrorists who stormed an army base in Uri sector on Sunday killing 18 soldiers belonged to Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and managed to sneak in by cutting the perimeter fencing of the highly-guarded army installation at two places, investigations have shown.In an indication that the terrorists were well-versed of the layout of the army base close to the Line of Control(LoC), the assailants locked the cooking room and store from outside to prevent the soldiers from leaving before setting them afire, sources privy to the probe said today.The investigators are not ruling out ‘insider help’ to the terrorists in view of the precise nature of the actions undertaken by the intruders once inside the army base, the sources said, adding the attackers first cut the perimeter fencing at two places.After locking the cooking room and store, two of the terrorists started moving towards the officers quarters within the base but they were gunned down before they could inflict any further damage, they said.The two Global Positioning System (GPS) sets recovered from the slain militants were damaged during the attack and have been handed over to the NIA, which is probing the case.The four intruders, who had crossed in from Pakistan- occupied Kashmir(Pok) a day earlier, were affiliated to LeT as the terrorist module bore striking resemblance to the group from the same Pakistan-based terror outfit eliminated in Poonch on September 11, the sources said.Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh had told reporters hours after the attack that as per initial reports the slain terrorists belonged to Jaish-e- Mohammad(JeM), also a Pakistan based terror outfit.”All four killed were foreign terrorists and had carried with them items which had Pakistani markings. Initial reports indicate that the slain terrorists belong to Jaish-E-Mohammed tanzeem,” Lt Gen Singh had said.The terrorists both at Uri and Poonch were carrying small plastic bottles containing a concoction of petroleum jelly and gelatin which was used to set the soldiers’ tents on fire, the sources said.

#UriAttack: Clamour grows to hit back at Pakistan; experts say we must have our military option open

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Even as the clamour grew for a military offensive against Pakistan following the deadly attack on the Indian Army camp in Uri on Sunday that killed 17 soldiers and injured 19, the Director General of Military Operations (DGMO), Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh, said here that “all four (terrorists) killed were foreign terrorists and had some items with them which had Pakistani markings.”Initial reports, he said, indicated the slain terrorists belong to Jaish-e-Mohammed Tanzeem. “Four AK 47 rifles and four Under Barrel Grenade Launchers along with a large number of other war-like stores were recovered from them,” said DGMO. Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said, “I have spoken to Pakistan DGMO and conveyed our serious concerns on the same.”Even as Army didn’t release the names of the deceased soldiers, sources told dna that they included 15 from 6 Bihar Regiment and two from 10 Dogra Regiment.Sources also said that a map carried by militants was found which was marked and indicated in Pashtun language.Earlier, home minister Rajnath Singh who postponed his scheduled visits to Russia and the US held a high-level crisis meeting here with the National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, home secretary, Intelligence Bureau chief, defence secretary, DGMO and CRPF DG. Rajnath Singh later briefed the PM on the developments of the day.“Those behind this terror incident would be brought to justice. There are definite and conclusive indications that the perpetrators were highly trained, heavily armed and specially equipped,” Singh said. He also said that “Pakistan is a terrorist state and it should be identified and isolated as such.”Brigadier Gurmeet Kanwal (retired), a fellow at the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses here, told dna that “India’s response needs to be reviewed and upgraded to a more pro-active one that increases Pakistan’s cost for waging a proxy war.”“It is high time we hit back and hurt Pakistan physically,” Brigadier Kanwal said. On questions of India’s military response leading to escalation, he said that India was comfortably placed militarily and diplomatically to take this war on Pakistan’s door. “There are plenty of ways to strike back effectively without crossing the LoC. These include artillery strikes to destroy their bunkers and forward posts, communication centres, logistic infrastructure and ammunition depots. India can launch air-to-ground strikes and also let the Special Forces conduct raids on Pakistani posts through which infiltration takes places,” Kanwal said.Another expert, Lt Gen (retd) B S Jaswal, said, “We must have our military option open, if required to strike at certain places.”“Bring pickets, which have launch pad to the ground, raze them to the ground. The reason is that till the time it does not hurt Pakistan physically, they would not respect our decency,” Lt Gen Jaswal, who was GOC-in-C of the Northern Command, said.“Pakistan keeps doing it (terror strikes) again and again knowing that we would not take any action,” said Major (retd) Gaurav Arya, who has expertise in Jammu and Kashmir security situation.The problems in Kashmir are “systematically manufactured” at the GHQ in Rawalpindi, he alleged, adding “We must take immediate action. Stop trade with Pakistan, downgrade (its) Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status. The world must know we are serious.”Former military secretary and former commander of the Srinagar-based 15 Corps of the Indian Army, Lieutenant General Syed Ata Hasnain (retd), however said that, “Knee jerk reactions are the worst in this kind of conflict situation which is hybrid in nature. The cause-effect needs greater analysis for a suitable response at the right time. This is a campaign being fought and campaigns are not fought by one-off responses to losses. The responses have to be thought through for relative strategic advantage rather than tactical satisfaction and ego.”He told dna, “The government and the army would obviously be contemplating that and the Prime Minister has done well in giving his mind early. Direct action is good for public solace, but it is always the indirect method which has greater impact. No doubt an army as experienced as the Indian Army is not going to sit on its haunches without a response. The range of options will all be under analysis and the most suitable one will be chosen both by the army and the political leadership in due course. Clearly, Pakistan, which has been carefully calibrating the interference in Kashmir for all these years and attempting to keep it below the threshold of India’s tolerance, may have just crossed that line, the consequences of which it will have to bear.”

The girl had identified Hilal as the person who allegedly slapped her when she was confronted by a mob after rumors spread that she was molested allegedly by an army trooperLater, in her statement before the Judicial Magistrate she stated she was confronted, assaulted and dragged by two boys and her bag snatched as soon as she came out of lavatory.Violent protests had rocked Handwara Township on April 12 after locals alleged that a girl was molested by the army trooper when she entered into a public washroom. Five people were later killed in the security forces firing on the protestors at different places across Kupwara district.The family of Hilal however has denied his role in the molestation row that rocked the north Kashmir township.Hailing from a well-off family, Hilal is youngest of the three brothers who own the biggest showroom of hardware and plywood in the Handwara Township.”On the day of the incident Hilal was busy at the shop as usual. He reached to the spot after 10 minutes of the incident and that too when crowds had gathered. Since they (girl and her family) are our neighbours, he intervened to save her and send her home.

She is like our sister,”Bilal Ahmad Banday, brother of Hilal, told dna.Bilal said his brother went to the police station on his own after they came calling. “Hilal is innocent.

But our brother went on his own to the police station because he knows he is innocent and has nothing to hide,” he said.The family is now hoping that Hilal will be granted bail in couple of days. “We have moved a bail application and hopefully he will be free soon. In fact the father of the girl is a very good man and we have very good relations with him”, said Bilal.Police said efforts are on to track down the unidentified boy in school uniform to unravel the conspiracy behind the Handwara unrest.”The boy (Hilal) must be in custody. I have no idea (about the second boy) because I am in Jammu”, said Uttam Chand, deputy inspector general of police, north Kashmir range.Meanwhile, the Handwara schoolgirl and her father was presented before the J&K State Women’s Commission (SWC) at Srinagar on Friday.

NIT Srinagar protests: Outstation student alleges she was threatened with rape

Fresh protests on Friday rocked the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Srinagar as the outstation students took out a march in the campus to press for their demands which includes shifting the institute out of Kashmir.

A student from Bihar also alleged that she was threatened by Kashmiri girls with rape if non-locals continued with their agitation. “I was threatened by Kashmiri girls of my class to attend classes, otherwise we will be raped and molested by the locals,” The Times of India quoted her as saying.

Narrating the ordeal, the student said, “Yesterday, a group of Kashmiri students walked up to me and said: ‘Ek ke saath rape hoga toh sab thande pad jaoge’ (If one of you gets raped, the rest will fall silent),” reports India Today.

A group of students tried to march towards the main gate but were stopped by the security force personnel on duty inside the campus, officials said.

They said the students wanted to interact with the media personnel camping outside the main gate of the institute at Hazratbal.

The students shouted slogans in favour of their demands but later went back inside the campus, the officials said.

The NIT authorities on Thursday allowed the students to skip the minor examinations scheduled to start from 11 April saying they would be given an opportunity to write these exams later.

“Those (students) who choose to leave (for home) will be provided another opportunity to appear in the minor in lieu of the minor, which is scheduled from 11 to 14 of April,” an order issued by the office of the Registrar said.

The students are demanding that the NIT campus be shifted out of Kashmir, action be taken against police officials involved in lathicharge of the students last Tuesday and action against officials of the NIT who according to them are involved in anti-national activities.

The state government has ordered a time-bound inquiry into the incidents of violence on 1 and 5 April, triggered by clashes between local and outstation students over India’s loss to the West Indies in the World T20 up semifinals last week.

“We have instituted an enquiry to go into the incidents at the NIT,” Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said on Thursday.

He said Additional District Magistrate Srinagar will conduct the inquiry and submit his report within 15 days.

Police have also registered two separate FIRs regarding the incidents of student violence that took place on NIT Srinagar campus last Friday and Tuesday.

The first FIR was registered against unknown persons for the clashes between outstation and local students on 1 April, a day after India lost to West Indies in the semi-final of the World T20 Cup.

The police has invoked sections 148 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly), 427 (mischief), 336 (endangering life of others) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) for the clashes between local and outstation students that took place last Friday.

In the second FIR registered on 5 April, the police, besides slapping the charges of the previous FIR, has added sections 353 (assault on public servant) and 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant).

While no one has been named in the two FIRs yet, the official said police is investigating the video evidence of violence that took place on the days of incidents.

Pakistan offers help to recover and rescue India army personnel buried in Siachen

Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday offered its assistance in the rescue and recovery of Indian Army personnel buried in an avalanche on Siachen glacier.

Pakistan Army’s Director General of Military Operations Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza called Indian DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh and offered assistance in the ongoing rescue operation, a military statement here said.

Ten Indian soldiers were reportedly buried in an avalanche that hit Siachen glacier in India-administered Kashmir on Wednesday.

The soldiers were hit while on duty at a post at an altitude of 19,000 feet.

An Indian army statement earlier said the post was being manned by a junior officer and nine soldiers when the avalanche struck.

In 2012, at least 140 people, including Pakistan Army personnel and civilians, were killed when an avalanche struck an army camp in the strategically important Gayari sector.

The Siachen Glacier has been dubbed as the world’s highest battlefield. Avalanches and landslides are common in the area during winter and temperatures there can drop as low as minus 60 degrees Celsius.

An estimated 8,000 troops have died on the glacier since 1984, almost all of them in avalanches and landslides or due to frostbite, altitude sickness or heart failure rather than combat.
