Five terror attacks in one day rock Kashmir, several injured
On June 13, five terror attacks rocked Kashmir and at least 11 security personnel were injured. Terrorists hurled a grenade at a CRPF battalion in Tral's Lariyar village. Another grenade was thrown at a CRPF camp at Padgampora, but it missed. At Anantnag's Anchidora, terrorists fired at the residence of former J&K HC Justice Muzaffar Attar. At Sopore, they fired at an army camp.
At least nine jawans were injured as terrorists attacked a CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district. Terrorists hurled a grenade at a CRPF 180 Battalion camp in Pulwama's Tral at 6:05 pm; three personnel are critical. Two paramilitary personnel sustained minor injuries in a similar attack on a CRPF camp in Tral on 12 June.
The injured CRPF personnel have been admitted to the Army's 92nd Base Hospital in Srinagar. It was the second grenade attack in two days in Tral and the third in the Kashmir Valley in three days. Four CRPF personnel were injured in the attack in Srinagar's Saraf Kadal on 12 June. No terrorist organization has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The Kashmir Valley has been witnessing a spike in infiltration bids reportedly with the complicity of Pakistan's security agencies. Foiling infiltration bids and managing the law-and-order situation in J&K remains a "daunting task" for the Indian security agencies, which are expecting tense days ahead.
There have been seven terror incidents in the Valley since June 11. Search operations are on to nab miscreants. The annual Amarnath Yatra is just 15 days away. Over 200 additional companies have been deployed for security.
