The Kashmir Valley is still being targeted by the J&K Police’s campaign against terrorism. Another development saw the police attaching five homes when it was discovered that the owners were providing refuge to terrorists, according to a statement from the J&K Police.
According to the Jammu and Kashmir Police, one house each was attached within the jurisdiction of Nowhatta, Pantha Chowk, and Zakura police stations, while two houses were attached in the Parimpora police station’s authority.
The security forces’ punitive action comes as the number of targeted killings of Kashmiri Pandits and outsiders has increased in the Kashmir Valley.
The Narendra Modi administration has taken actions in the past and would take more in the future to protect vulnerable groups, according to national security advisor Ajit Doval in an interview with news agency ANI. The best course of action, he advised, is to engage in offensive operations against terrorists and find them all.
