Terrorists Mostly Use Trucks To Move To Jammu, Strict Checking At All Nakas Will Check Their Movement

With the onset of winter in Kashmir, a good proportion of Kashmiri population migrate to Jammu. The harsh winters push Kashmiris having physical ailments or weaknesses to Jammu. The elites too move to Jammu, and also the labour class.

Another section also moves to Jammu during the winter months. These are the dreaded terrorists.

One can understand that many people who shift to Jammu during winter want to save themselves from chilly and frozen Kashmir. But what could be the reason for the terrorists to migrate to Jammu in the winter?

It is obvious that the terrorists also like the balmy winters of Jammu. The outskirts of Jammu are occupied by Kashmiris. This way, they get hideouts to stay. Militant supporters too shift to Jammu in winters . These supporters or the overground workers get busy to propagate the ideology that is based on separatism.

Many Terror Attacks In Jammu In Winter, Or Following Winter Months

As witnessed in the previous years, militant attacks on the security establishments happen during the peak winter months or around the season. In April this year, terrorists attacked a bus carrying ITBP jawans in the wee hours of the day. The attack took place in the Sunjwan area of Jammu which remains abuzz with people from the valley. At the same place in 2018, terrorists attacked the army station Sunjwan. Earlier in the year 2004, at the same place terrorists attacked the same military station.

The militants did not remain stationed in this particular area. They move about in areas where maximum Kashmiris choose to live in winter months. These include Sidhra, Channi, Janipur and Ballei Charana areas.

We are familiar with the term ‘hybrid militants’. They first visit Jammu and ensure the safe transportation of the armed terrorists. The terrorists every time choose trucks to move from Kashmir to Jammu. The terrorists have a huge cache of arms and ammunition with them. So they cannot move in other public transport vehicles like buses, tempos or luxury taxis. They either choose private cars or heavy loaded trucks to move to Jammu.

The truckers are usually not suspected because the trucks remain halted for days and weeks at different stations along the Jammu Srinagar National Highway. But as seen in previous years, every time during naka and checking, arms and ammunition along with militants were captured from the trucks.

Terror Ecosystem Wants To Spread To Jammu

There is another reason why terrorists and hybrid militants want to move to Jammu. As of now, Jammu is not impacted by terrorism. Terrorists and hybrid militants want to spread radicalization there too. They preach their toxic ideology in the Muslim dominated areas of Jammu. To give a practical touch to their toxicity, attacks are carried out by militants in order to provoke the local population and spread terrorism in Jammu also. By carrying out attacks in Jammu, the militants want to show the world that it is not about the Kashmir issue, it is the issue of the whole Jammu and Kashmir.

In the early hours of Wednesday, a regular naka checking was being carried out. The militants hurled a number of grenades on security forces in the Sidhra area of Jammu. The terrorists were coming from Kashmir in a truck. The terrorists fired on security forces and in retaliation all the four terrorists were killed. From the initial investigation, the identification of the militants had not been done till now. It is said that the militants were Kashmiris from areas in Pulwama district.

During winter, security will be boosted in the Jammu area. The security nakas should be provided with advanced weapon scanning equipment so that the attacks in Jammu could be prevented. The security nakas in Kashmir and along the stations of Banihal, Ramban, Udhampur and Nagrota should remain on high vigil so that the terrorists are not able to reach Jammu.
