Srinagar: ADGP Law and Order J&K Vijay Kumar on Tuesday stated that there are currently 25 local militants and 25 to 30 foreign militants active in Kashmir. Additionally, he mentioned that only one militant is active in Srinagar.
 
He made these remarks during the press conference on the Shalla Kadal attack, during which a Zaldagar resident has been accused and arrested in the killing of two non-locals.
 
ADGP said that the accused was in touch with the Pakistani handler through social media, who had managed to provide him with a pistol in January.
 
He urged parents and teachers to keep a close watch on their children especially those who spend most of their time on Social Media.
 
He asserted that the police will act tough against the Pakistani handlers who are locals but currently residing in Pakistan, referring to Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.
 
“We are seizing the property of the local handlers who are sitting across and hiring locals here to carry out terrorist activities,” he added.
