After the attack on Uri Army camp on 18 September, India has been facing more attacks from Pakistani side. In order to retaliate to Indian surgical strikes, militant activity have only increased in across the border.

Earlier in the month, militants had entered a police picket in Jammu & Kashmir’s Kulgam, snatched rifles and fled away.

In a recent one, militants snatched guns from security guards in Anantnag district. The incident happened at a TV tower in Anantnag where the militants barged in the guardroom on Sunday night. The southern area of the district in Dalvash is where this guardroom is situated. The armed militants overpowered the guards and fled away after snatching the weapons.

The snatched weapons included Insas and carbine rifles among other self-loading ones, the total being five of rifles.

“Senior officers from police reached the spot to assess the situation,” HT quoted sources, adding that an alert has been sounded and all the entry and exit points leading to Dooru village were sealed.

While the two guards are taken into Police custody for inquiry, a massive search operation has been launched in the look out of the terrorists.

After the Uri attack, Jammu & Kashmir has become even more vulnerable with constant ceasefire vioaltions and another attack that happened at BSF camp in Baramulla.
