Days after 40 CRPF personnel were killed in one of the deadliest terror attacks in the Kashmir’s Pulwama district. Army on Tuesday said that the Jaish-e-Mohammad leadership in the Valley has been eliminated in less than 100 hours.
The announcement was made by Corps Commander Lt Gen KJS Dhillon of the Chinar Corps in a joint press conference with J&K police and CRPF.
“I would like to inform that in less than 100 hours, we have eliminated Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) leadership in the valley, which was being handled by JeM from Pakistan,” Dhillon said a day after eliminating Pulwama terror attack’s masterminds.
Dhillon said, “We have eliminated the top commander who carried out the Pulwama attack.”
KJS Dhillon also warned that “anyone who has picked up a gun in Kashmir will be killed and eliminated”.
He urged mothers in Kashmir to ensure their sons abandon militancy. “In a Kashmiri society, a mother has a great role to play. I would request the mothers of Kashmir to please request their sons who have joined terrorism to surrender and get back to the mainstream. Anyone who has picked up the gun will be killed and eliminated unless he surrenders.”
According to Dhillon, security forces had been tracking the top leadership of the JeM since the February 14 bombing in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
On Monday, three JeM terrorists were killed in an encounter at Pinglan in Pulwama district.
