The Army on Tuesday recovered Rs 2,000 notes, which have been in circulation for less than a fortnight, from two terrorists killed in Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir, news agency ANI reported. Security forces had cordoned off the area early morning after the terrorists who were holed up there opened fire.  A heavy gunbattle ensued soon after. A combing operation was underway to flush out for more terrorists, if any, the agency further reported.

On November 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while announcing the move to scrap old high currency tender, said counterfeit notes are being used to fund terrorist activities in the country. The recovery of the new notes from the terrorists will provide ammunition to the opposition which has been in a combative mood inside the Parliament.

Meanwhile, a Pakistani intruder was killed in firing by Border Security Forces (BSF) along the International Border in RS Pura sector of Jammu district. According to reports, the intruder was challenged by troops and was shot when he did not pay heed. On Monday, a BSF head constable was killed and five others were injured when Pakistani troops resorted to heavy mortar shelling on forward Indian positions and civilian areas at separate places along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. Over 290 incidents of firing and shelling along the LoC and the International Border by Pakistani troops have been witnessed since Indian army conducted surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on September 29.

          2000 notes mean that the terrorists can carry more money with ease than before. Only Modi and his harebrained cabinet can come up with such illogical logic for adding this value notes.

                I am sure Arun Jaitley sent the draft copy to ISI first, and that fellow is claiming that it was difficult to keep it a secret? Oh... from the stupid Indian potion.

                    Modi has kindly invited ISI to probe the matter and report to him.

                        Current experiment with demonitisation should be used to do the same again in future, if need be. It will be wise to address all the difficulties arose in the process and in a smooth manner. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;May be an alternate scheme should be in place like asking people to have debit cards and accounts handy from now on. Some Organsiation should be trusted to produce token (like the one Telengana doing now) for time being outside city areas and the resource should be in place there all the time, should it be necessary to be utilized! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If it comes to demonitisation people should simply be allowed to increase their limits for a month or so on the credit cards during change over period. All efforts should be made to move toward cashless economy in the mean time with incentives given to them.

                            Supporters/Sympathizers of 1) TMC, 2) AAP or 3) Congress must have taken the notes to the terrorists. Possibility of who did this is in the order as stated!

                                      Surgical strike failed on terrorists but succeeded on public.
