Anyone who picks up gun in Kashmir will get killed: GOC Dhillon

Srinagar, Feb 19: The General officer Commanding (GoC) of Srinagar-based Army's 15 corps, Lt Gen KS Dhillon on Tuesday said that anyone who takes up the gun in the Kashmir will be "killed and eliminated", unless they surrender.
Addressing a press conference here Lt Gen Dhillon said, "Our focus is clear on counter-terrorism operations. We are very clear that anyone who enters Kashmir Valley will not go back alive."
"Anyone who has picked up a gun will be killed and eliminated, unless he surrenders. I request all the mothers in the Valley to ensure that their sons don't take up the gun," he said.
The GoC said that in a Kashmiri society, mothers have a big role and "I urge them to persuade their sons who have picked up guns to come back and join the mainstream and live a normal life. Mother's love is the best tool to bring back misguided youth. Otherwise, our reply to those wielding guns is that we will kill them and there will be no mercy for them."
The GoC Dhillon, who was flanked by flanked by IGP Kashmir SP Pani and IG CRPF Zulfikar Hassan, said that of late infiltration in Kashmir has gone down due to the closure of passes in the wake of recent snowfall. "But infiltration is happening from Pakistan side through LoC and International border in Jammu," he said.
On the recent convoy attack, the GoC said that they had got the leads but "It won't be feasible to share those leads at present as the investigations were in the advanced stage."
"But yes, the convoy attack was carried out by two Pakistani militants Kamran and Rashid Gazi along with a local conduit Hilal Ahmed," said Dhillon. "The plan was conceived by Pakistan army with the help of ISI and it was executed by Jaish militants in Kashmir. Jaish is the baby of Pakistan army." On Thursday last, in a deadliest attack in the Kashmirs' militancy history, a suicide bomber rammed his vehicle into the CRPF convoy at Lethpora and blew the vehicle laden with the explosives resulting in the martyrdom of 40 CRPF men and injuries to dozens others.
Asked why the Pulwama encounter resulted in huge loss to army and police, the GoC Dhillon said that the officers were leading from the front with the result they received bullet injuries. "Brigadier Harbinder was on leave and he cut short his leave and joined the anti-militancy operations at Pulwama in which he was injured. DIG south Kashmir Amit Kumar also was leading from the front" he said adding that the Army took the casualties on to it to avoid civilian killings.
He said that over the past few months recruitment of militants in Kashmir has come down while infiltration has been taking place from Jammu region as snowfall has closed passes on LoC in Kashmir. "Whosoever will pick up guns, will be eliminated," GoC Dhillion said.
