Militants trying to sabotage ceasefire: CM

  • 6

Srinagar: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said that while the unilateral ceasefire announced by the central government has brought great relief to the people of the state, militants were desperately trying to sabotage the process by continuing violent activities.
“Even as we see the ceasefire bringing great relief to the people of J&K, militants seem to be continuing their violent activities and are desperately trying to sabotage the process. I only hope that they realise the futility of their actions soon,” Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
The chief minister was referring to a spate of militancy-related incidents in the valley since the beginning of the month of Ramazan, for the duration of which the central government announced a suspension of counter-insurgency operations in the Valley.
Militants have especially upped the ante over the past week in Kashmir, carrying out a series of grenade attacks on security forces and politicians. Nearly a dozen grenade attacks have taken place in the valley since Thursday.
