Rein in spill over of militancy to Jammu

The demonic designs of terror outfits at the behest of the terror sponsoring Pakistan are evident in their frantic efforts to have their tentacles spread from Kashmir valley to across parts of Jammu division. This is not on the basis of surmises of any sort but is corroborated with the quantum of inputs from the intelligence agencies during the last many months. Despite that, we are afraid, the Government has apparently been found not inclined to erect a strapping and sturdy mechanism to counter and nip the spill over of terrorism to this part of the State. Terror outfits with their desperate attempts were making no bones about their nefarious plans in re-energizing their over ground workers , activating sleeper cells and even luring the innocent youth to accomplish their broader designs to paint whole of Jammu and Kashmir as “trouble torn” and affected State.
Excelsior has been getting, through identified reliable sources, reports about our intelligence agencies , during the last several months regularly getting inputs that several organisations of terrorists are hell bent upon spreading their evil and atrocious activities in Jammu region in order to disturb peaceful atmosphere in this part of the State. Not only this, it is reliably learnt that some terrorists, who during the current year succeeded in entering Jammu and Kashmir territory after crossing the International Border with Pakistan, are in regular contact with over ground workers even in the outskirts of Jammu and desperately looking for the opportunities to carry out their demonic activities.
What are precisely the plans, the routes and the contacts which the terror outfits want to put in working mode, need not only to be known fully but defeated in their very embryos. It is now fairly known that terrorists are mainly focussing on Kokernag -Sinthantop route. This route connects Kishtwar district with terror hot bed Anantnag district and Mughal Road which in turn connects Rajouri -Poonch with Shopian which is worst terror infested district of Kashmir valley.
An appraisal of the information available to reliable sources reveal that terror outfits have started activating their over ground workers particularly in erstwhile Doda district which presently comprises Kishtwar, Doda and Ramban districts and twin districts of Rajouri and Poonch to conduct surveillance and manoeuvring as per their “requirements” and to provide them timely necessary support in their diabolical designs . It is a matter of grave concern that several youth of erstwhile Doda district who went missing during the current year so far have reportedly joined different terror groups . They have also been imparted arms training locally with intent to carry out subversive activities as and when directed by their mentors and sponsors. Which places, identified spots or hideouts are used for imparting training locally to the lured youth need to be found out and smashed .
More concern and anxiety is attributable to the fact that even after getting these inputs of startling nature from the intelligence agencies as also from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs , no serious efforts have been made by the Government to put in place a mechanism to check spill over of terrorism and terror related activities from Kashmir valley to Jammu. Why is the State Administrative apparatus adopting a lackadaisical or casual approach towards an issue of such a sensitive nature despite the Union Home Ministry being extremely worried about the designs of the terrorists and their mentors from across the border , is beyond our comprehension. We can expect the State Administration addressing this issue on top priority before it is too late.
