Early Times Report
Jammu, May 19: The Cordon And Search Operations (COAS) launched by the security forces in the volatile areas in south Kashmir have sent terrorists packing into their rat holes and they are running for their lives.
Sources told Early Times that during the past one week security forces have conducted massive search operations in a few villages in south Kashmir's Shopian district and in neighboring Tral area in Pulwama district. "Searches were conducted at Heff and Shirmal villages in Shopian, where a group of 30 terrorists was seen roaming last time. The search operation which started at 1:30 pm in the night lasted for one whole day as the security personnel searched all the houses in both the villages," the source said.
He said another search operation was launched at Seer village in Tral area. "The operation lasted for more than 18 hours but no contact could be established with the terrorists," the source added.
A police official said, "We know that terrorists are present in these areas and are running for their lives. They were able to make their presence felt in south Kashmir during the past two months as we were told to go slow in wake of the Lok Sabha polls in Anantnag constituency. After the polls have been called off
Running for lives
Since the day security forces have intensified the search operations terrorists are on the run. Instead of moving in groups they are moving around with one or two people. They (terrorists) know it very well that their end is coming close and they are trying to save their lives.
e have activated our men and machinery and searches are being carried out on daily basis to push the terrorists away from the populated areas."
He said, "Eliminating 100 terrorists active in south Kashmir is no big deal and they also know it very well."
A source said, "Police and other security agencies have taken a serious s note about terrorists baring into the house of policemen and harassing their families."
He said, "On the other hand Army soldiers have vowed to avenge the killing of Lieutenant Umar Fayaz who was abducted from a marriage party and later killed in south Kashmir."
"Since the day security forces have intensified the search operations terrorists are on the run. Instead of moving in groups they are moving around with one or two people. They (terrorists) know it very well that their end is coming close and they are trying to save their lives," they added.
"Now they are not appearing publicly nor are they making any attempt to loot banks. They know that a trap has been laid and it's just a matter of time before they would be captured and killed,' said a source.
However, an official said, "Terrorists giving slip to security forces is a cause of concern we need to carry out more precise operations to eliminate the terrorists."
