Security forces had already strengthened security around the areas where the non-local labourers are residing, especially in the vulnerable areas of Kashmir.
This is not for the first time that the non-local labourers were targeted by the militants in Kashmir. Earlier as well, the militants targeted several non-local labourers across the Valley.
Militants also targeted police officers and political workers and this year so far 17 persons were killed in these attacks. But security forces killed all those militants who were responsible for these targeted killings. So far, over 120 militants were killed in Kashmir.
Security forces are putting more pressure on the remaining militants, the OGWs and their sympathizers to wipe out militancy from Kashmir.
