Specific information, slick planning, great tracing, immaculate sniffing by the canines and spectacular results for security forces yet again!
Yet again it was lightning fast action double time as the security forces dislodged yet another move by the terror band to probably create disturbance because the quantity of arms and ammunition recovered suggested precisely that.
What are these depleted terror bands going to achieve because there every move id under check and the supply routes have been snuffed out. They should understand the spine of the terrorism unleashed has been cracked up and there is no hope in hell that it can rise up again.
Almost all their over ground workers in District Rajouri have been checkmated and the security forces manual intelligence network is of top quality.
Any move being made by the violence mongers (reduced to such a commodity) is under observation and thus one false move and they will find the gun barrel staring at them in the middle of the two eyes.
48th Rashtriya Rifles battalion in Palma has a stupendous record of fighting terror, The Special Operations Group of Jammu and Kashmir Police is no less and District Police has over the time has proved that they can be seriously effective in producing the desired results.
The District Police is being led by DIG Rajouri-Poonch Range Vivek Gupta who needs no introduction, the support cast includes SSP District Police Rajouri Sheema Nabi Qasba, DYSP Operations and officers and men who can produce high voltage dramatic action when confronting these prowlers, house hopping or hill hopping in the hours of darkness.
The security forces have almost brought the terror factor to a standstill and that is the reason as to why once again Rajouri is on the move to a different world altogether. The past ever since the nineties of the last century has been bad but now things are looking damn good for the people but the security forces have to keep their eyes and ears open because the unpredictability factor cannot be ruled out since anything can happen anywhere. It has happened in the past!
The normalcy in Rajouri is all because of the stupendous work done by the Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir Police. It has been a long overhaul overhaul of terror fighting and getting the neurologically shattered populace back on the tracks.
They had to be made to get rid of the psychological trauma and some realistic measures had to be taken to heal them. They were hemmed up in the fight between the good and the evil. Finally the good prevailed and the population broke the fear shackles and flung open the doors to freedom after they were in constant suffocation of the dreaded knocks at their doors during midnights.
These men are fighters, they are smart, clever and intelligent. They know that strength and empathy go together more often than folks imagine. Over and above they are brave, they know what to do and when to do it and that is why they have proved to be successful all the time. The fighters want a worthy opponent. There is no redress in fighting the pathetic. But if the opponent has realized that he cannot carry on he can give it up. There is an option that the security forces are now giving during encounters. But still some jug head wants to carry on then the fault is his. Another thing the terror agents should realize that these people in security forces are fighters who never lose their way in a dark forest or in an unknown territory, with or without compass or GPS it does not matter, what matters is the target and a couple of days before they did find one an easier one by their standards but still needed all the hard work and planning. What if it was bait? Any way what happened went something like this:
This was a breakthrough when security forces in a joint operation were launched based upon specific information a couple of days back.
The information was regarding an arms consignment being transported, to where exactly could not be ascertained.
Thereafter the security forces conducted a cordon and search operation in the forests of Maniyal (Thanamandi) area near Rajouri.
Troops 48 RR and Special operations Group Rajouri and Jammu and Kashmir Police were all part of the operation.
In the evening of the same day a black bag was spotted by the troops alongside a streamlet in an uninhabited area
The sniffer canine got into the action mode to negate the possibility of any IED in case it was there in the vicinity of the bag.
Thereafter the search of the bag was carried out and arms/ammunition was recovered. One AK-47 assault rifle with two magazines and 54 rounds and four 9 mm pistols with eight magazines and 105 rounds along with some other items were recovered.
Further investigations on this are carrying on. This operation took place a couple of days back.
What exactly was this and who were the men carrying it will come out subsequently but one thing is sure that someone was with a devious intent to manufacture something in the countryside. This incidentally is a big haul, five weapons and the ammunition recovered does indicate they were going to be used but where exactly will obviously be found out. This was sort of a seek and confiscate category of operations all part of fighting insurgencies and it yet again proved that the security grid in the hinterland is absolutely immaculate and on an impenetrable grid!
