2019: 82% militants killed in J&K were locals

Jul 30, 2019 08:34 IST

The Indian Express has reported that of the 121 militants killed in Jammu and Kashmir by security forces in the first half of 2019, only 21 were from Pakistan. This means that 82% of the militants killed in the state were locals. Most of these encounters took place in south Kashmir, with 36 militants being killed in Pulwama, 34 in Shopian and 16 in Anantnag districts. These details about the state of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir are part of a government document which shows that militancy continues to be on the rise in the districts of south Kashmir and is now dominated by locals
