The re-emergence of Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) outfit on the militancy scene in Kashmir has shaken the security grid that fears more fidayeen attacks and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blasts in future.
The sources in the security grid said that re-introduction of remote-controlled IED in Sopore on January 6 that resulted in the death of four Indian Reserve Police cops including a junior officer, has sent shock waves.
“Managing IED blasts is the most lethal form of guerrilla warfare. Kashmir was fortunate that use of IEDs had minimized to almost zero but its re-introduction is not a good omen for the security forces and the public at large,” a senior police officer told Kashmir Wire, wishing not to be named.
