Terrorism in Jammu & Kashmir: Ebb and Flow » Indian Defence Review

With the killing of Lashkar-e-Taiba’s top Kashmir Commander, Abu Dujana, in an encounter with the security forces in the early hours of Aug 1, 2017, in Pulwama district of south Kashmir, the anti-militancy operations have scored a great success in eliminating the effective and influential leadership of Jihadis in Kashmir during this summer. Earlier, the neutralization of Burhan Wani, Junaid Mattoo and Abu Qasim had dealt a severe jolt to the command and control set-up of the militants in conducting synchronized operations in Kashmir. It may be mentioned that most of the encounters which accounted for these top commanders and their accomplices have taken place in south Kashmir, where the militants seem to be feeling confident enough to operate with some degree of freedom. However, the same freedom seems to have induced a degree of complacency in the militants, resulting in their elimination, one by one.
