A terrorist hideout at Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir
According to the authorities, the security forces have now come quite close to the terrorists’ stronghold in Anantnag, Jammu and Kashmir, from where they used bombs and grenades to push them back. An anti-terrorist operation has been going on since late Tuesday evening in the dense forests of Kokernag’s Gadol district in Anantnag. Six days have passed since the initial conflict, during which thousands of soldiers, including para commandos, engaged the terrorists in an endless gun battle. In order to neutralize the terrorists, three officers were killed on duty, two from the army and one from the police.
Three suspected highly armed terrorists are said to be hiding in a strategically advantageous area of steep and deep forest. They are believed to be linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba as Uzair Khan, one of them, joined Lashkar last year and is familiar with the neighborhood. Since Saturday, it has been raining intermittently at the venue, making operations a major challenge. Especially on these Pir Panjal hills there are dense trees, caves and ditches, which greatly reduce vision and increase the risk of surgery.
Military forces cannot enter the region until it is thoroughly disinfected, according to military sources, although there is no firing by militants there. The terrorist may still be alive and hiding, ready to launch a sneak attack. They may even have planted an IED inside the hideout and timed it to explode when the army got there. According to insiders, this is the reason why the army is making such slow progress. Military dogs and explosive detection equipment were also deployed to clear the area. Security personnel believe that the bodies of the terrorists may be in the hideout. It would be incredibly difficult for them to escape even if they weren’t already dead because the military had blocked off the entire area.
