Not that they were not a cause before but this remains a vulnerability as far as Patrols go! In short nothing is known about the next bush!
-‘Incidentally both are on either side of the Pir Panjals and the routes to cross over the Pir Panjals are many’!
-‘The Indian hearts should go out for the men who took on the fusillade of bullets. All these always smiling men were from the unit of superb fighters the 16 RR. Had they known that a scared jackal was in the waiting they would have got them! They martyred themselves but trust me the day of the Jackals is not far off! I’m no Fredrick Forsyth to tell you why because the retaliation would not be a miss hit! The brave men were, Nb Subedar Jaswinder Singh, SM, VPO- Mana Talwandi, Distt- Kapurthala, Punjab, Nk Mandeep Singh, Vill- Chalha, PO- Sirha, Distt- Gurdaspur, Punjab, Sep Gajjan Singh, Vill- Panchranda, PO- Jhaj, Distt- Ropar, Punjab, Sep Saraj Singh, Vill- Akhtiyarpur Dhavkal , PO- Bhabhi, Distt- Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh and Sep Vaisakh H, Vill- Odanavattom, PO- Kudavattoor, Distt- Kollam, Kerala!’
‘Some routes lead to Budgam and some to Shopian. That had been happening before also, well this story is old and forgotten but in the mountains and hilly terrain only a few things matter because whatever said and done everything cannot be covered as far as security goes. The information network of the Indian Army and the Police is just too strong and could be the satellite imagery too but jungles are no one’s friends! They (jungles) could be of animals but never of friends! Those firing at our soldiers from hidden vegetation could not have been friends! Humans in forms of animals would be better word!-‘
-‘The first blood drawn matters, they drew it yet again but they have to wait for a ruthless strike back and trust me it will come back, will not be the same place, may not be also the time but it will! To drench out an evil is the best way is to kill evil and this will happen within days as the terrorists are on the run. In hills and mountains the worst thing is, if you run you could die of losing breath too! So why waste a bullet on the scoundrel? The second blood drawn would be us! very soon!
-’ They (terrorists) got their surprise factor going along but to what extent? Mind you it was not a face off, had it been the same scenario, it would have been the kiss of death for them but one cannot hunt when the predator is behind the leaves as we get over the Dehra Ki Gali and that wretched pass Chamrar Ki Gali’! Incidentally this is a Wolf Pass! It always was!’ Wonder how it could be now? Moreover from where have they come from! That is where my brain stumbled, it has to be Shopian (to where they were going ) after crossing the line of control? When I was writing this story, combat was also there (Shopian)! I know all would be taken care off but this one for a moment blew my head off! This was ugly and I’m sorry to say if diplomacy with Pakistan has to be sent into dust bins then this is the time! Pakistan is not a country that needs any more diplomatic responses because it is time for action! Should be a sublime but painful one against the terrorists! If SEALS can do it we too can do it too! Period!
I was on a beautiful story on Baramulla right at 3 AM in the morning and here my friend Mustaq was blasting my ears to tell this one and half past eight, but this one was Goddamn serious:
‘A Junior Commissioned Officer and four soldiers who were critically injured in a gunfight with militants in villages close to Dera Ki Gali in Surankote area of Poonch district succumbed to injuries. The day was Monday 10th October, 2021. The other input was, In firefight during the ongoing encounter with (militants), one JCO and four Jawans of Indian Army have suffered critical injuries. But subsequently all five of them succumbed to the injuries. Thereafter the Cordon and search Operations was launched based on intelligence inputs‘!.
I The excerpts in the morning:
If they want a fireworks in hinterland they will be given in a pay back and also a show time! They were on the run till the time I wrote this while completing other assignments as my buddy Mustaq kept supplying the information blitz!’
The early morning operation in a village near DKG in Surankote was launched after intelligence inputs were received about the presence of terrorists there.
A group of heavily-armed terrorists have sneaked in from across the Line of Control, as per intelligence inputs. The terrorists had taken shelter in the Chamrer forests. (to be honest this was and probably is also an infiltration route. If one is through, none can detect till the horizons of Pir panjals are reached. Rest is a downhill sleep walk. This had been a perennial walk for the men carrying Kalashnikovs before hill Kaka happened)’!
II. By the evening:
‘Obviously the terrorists are on the run and they cannot go anywhere and thus the hunt is on!’
More reinforcements had been rushed to the encounter site to eliminate or nab the terrorists. Encounter and the chase is going on between Army troops and terrorists in the Poonch area around 2 km from the site where a JCO and 4 jawans of Indian Army were injured in anti-terrorist operations and later lost their lives. Operations were on and details awaited!
According to officials, there have been reports that a group of heavily-armed terrorists have taken shelter in the Chamrer forest after managing to sneak in from across the Line of Control (LoC). Reinforcements have been deployed in the area to cordon all escape routes and nab or eliminate the terrorists.
Further reports did claim that one of them had been neutralized!
I think with this illogical action the logic of the terrorist is broken. When you make people afraid their empathy centre shuts down, they become less logical, more primitive and harsh. Thus the terrorist is a huge part of the problem. They think they’re speaking up for their cause when in reality they shoot both friend and foe in the foot. What are the bearded men doing across. Sallahuddin, Hafeez Saeed, Azhar Masood and Bhakt Zameen, could be many others who are not growing any younger as Geelani, I mean Sayed Shah did not get in Kashmir! By the way Imran Khan is not a terrorizing bowler any more. He is old and haggard! Our own Kashmir has the capability of terrorizing batsmen! These four or five who did this outrageous act will bite the bullet! It’s just a matter of time! But India lost brave soldiers who were patrolling for the people so that they could sleep in peace! They took on the bullets just for the people leaving on their own to sob with moist eyes forever! But that is a soldier’s duty and he has to do it! The five did it for the nation and the People! This story does not end here! It cannot because the hit back is on the way!
