New Delhi: Minister of State in MHA G Kishan Reddy said in a written reply in Lok Sabha that 84 infiltration attempts have been made by Pakistan-based terrorists since August 2019. The Ministry of Home Affairs said that 22,557 terrorists have been killed in Jammu and Kashmir since 1990.
The MHA also stated that 1,011 terrorists have been eliminated, 42 terrorists have been apprehended and 2253 prevented entry from 2005 till October 31, 2019.
“As per MHA report Infiltration attempts are part of proxy war agenda of an adversary to replenish the depleted terrorist strength in the valley to achieve its intention to ratchet up violence in Jammu and Kashmir and internationalize the issue. Relentless domination operations, ambushes and patrols are being conducted to thwart infiltration attempts. In addition, a robust counter-infiltration grid is in place to foil infiltration attempts,” said the minister in his written reply.
Earlier today, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said in Lok Sabha that there has been no disruption in the normalcy in the Kashmir valley after the revocation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019. He said that it is not possible for him to make Congress’s condition normal, because the party had predicted bloodshed in Kashmir after abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Shah reiterated that not a single bullet was fired in the Valley.
