Deaths Of Jammu And Kashmir Policemen At The Hands Of Militants Feeding Into Unpopularity Of Extremists In State


As a growing number of Kashmiri policemen are killed by their own in the war of attrition, the massive gatherings at their funerals strike down the very cause of what militants in the Valley want — grassroot support.

The continuous killings of local policemen in Jammu and Kashmir have done what security establishment could not do for years: it is feeding into the unpopularity of militants at the ground level.

On Tuesday, as Muslims in Kashmir were observing the night of Shab-e-Qadr, a pre-drawn strike by suspected militants on a guard post of a court complex in Pulwama district left two Kashmiri policemen dead.

When the body of Ghulam Hassan Chopan was brought to his native village of Wohlitra in Rafiabad area, 70 kilometers north of Srinagar, thousands of men and women gathered to pay their last respects.

Chopan, a tall man in early forties with trimmed beard and a muscular frame, was father of three young boys. According to the villagers, he was a ‘pious man’ who took care of his old parents and helped others in this remote hamlet in Rafiabad. Read More
