In wake of targeted killings of Hindus and Sikhs in the Kashmir valley, the head of Intelligence Bureau’s Counter Terror operations has reached Srinagar to personally supervise the operations being carried out by the security forces against the Pakistan-sponsored terrorists. 

In the last six days, a total of seven Hindus and Sikhs have been killed in the broad daylight. Among those who were killed include Makhan Lal Bindoo, a pharmacist in the Valley, who never left Kashmir even when there was a concerted campaign against the Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s.

The counter-terrorism teams of other national security agencies arrived in the Valley on Thursday to assist the Jammu and Kashmir Police and other forces. They will act as force multipliers to them, sources in the security establishment said.

On Thursday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah reviewed the prevailing security scenario in Kashmir and a decision was taken to send the IB and other agencies sleuths to monitor the situation. The meeting was attended by NSA Ajit Doval, IB chief Arvind Kumar and R&AW Secretary Samant Goel.

Since January this year, a total of 28 people have been killed by terrorists in Jammu & Kashmir. Except seven, all were Muslims. 

As per the report on Thursday's killing of two teachers in Srinagar, Supinder Kaur and Deepak Chand were the only non-Muslims in the school. They were separated from the rest of the teaching staff and then shot dead from close range. 

Talking to media persons on Thursday, CRPF DG Kuldeep Singh had said that the force has reviewed the situation and is taking measures to contain the terror activities. 

Stating that three 'lone wolf' attacks have taken place, he clarified that the situation in J&K has not deteriorated.
