At least ten CRPF personnel were injured, out of which three are critical after militants hurled a grenade at a CRPF camp in Tral area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Tuesday, according to the news agency PTI.

A police official was quoted, “The camp was housed by troops of the 180th battalion of CRPF at Ladiyar village of Tral, 35 kilometers from Srinagar”, as saying by the PTI.

He further said, “The grenade exploded inside the camp, causing splinter injuries to three jawans. They were taken to a hospital and the area around the camp was cordoned off to nab the unidentified militants.”

Few hours later, a series of grenade attacks on CRPF personnel were reported in different regions of the Kashmir Valley. While one took place at Padgampora in Pulwama district by motorcycle-borne militants, another took place at a police station in Pulwama. Besides these, in an another incident later, the militants lobbed grenade at a CRPF camp in Pahalgam’s Sarnal as well.

Meanwhile, militants on Tuesday fired upon an Army camp of 22 Rashtriya Rifles at Pazalpora in North Kashmir. The militants fled after retaliation by the Army. Also, weapons were snatched at Anantnag’s Anchidora at the house of retired Justice Mohammad Athar. 4 x SLRs rifles were taken and two Jammu and Kashmir Police (JKP) are injured in the incident, according to the ANI.

In a similar incident on Monday, at least two CRPF personnel were injured after militants fired UBGL grenade at a camp in the same region. A police official had said that militants had fired the grenade from an underbarrel grenade launcher (UBGL) on the camp of the CRPF’s 180 battalion located at the main town in Tral area, adding that the explosion caused minor injuries to two CRPF personnel.

      Many of the Kashmiri Muslims (who have a degree of education) are nice people and appreciate the Indian democracy and secularism. They are quite aware that a Jewish supported China (which is militarily weaker than India) is busy chopping the beards of Muslims In China and even stopping them from naming their children with Muslim names! Kashmir has a very tiny population as well.

        Easy job. Note Porkistan is a bait of some countries. Porkistan is weak on her own and small thus must be handled with care but effectively. Enhance the armed forces in the Vale and do not ignore that POK belongs to us. The border of Kashmir is in reality with Afghanistan and next to Tajikistan. Every inch of our territory is sacred. No problem for 1.3 billion Indians.

          No Indian with even little brains is surprised. stan a small proxy state is being used by some countries to keep the situation in Kashmir unstable. The Valley is small more troops along with better intelligence-surveillance should end this problem. Also, boost the tourism. Frustrate the anti-India elements outside India and in India who are working for keeping Kashmir unstable. Do not continue to delay the process and let this continue. Also, enlarge the armed forces and the nuclear, missile and conventional nals. Modern wars are won by numbers and good weapons we have both. General Rawat is a great and a cautious person the politicians must follow his advice.

But this may help Buniyas to help understan that Kashmir is going to get AZADI AZADI AZADI AZADI !

                  Army needs to be 10 times harder in dealing with these extremists. If US or even liberal French armies get attacked like this they will kill 100s of militants without knowing if they actually are militants. Army needs to be able to COUNTER-ATTACK with full force using helicopters and surveillance, light bombs, the moment they are hit. They should have a common command and control system that tracks movement of these militants in kashmir and on attack hits every single place that seemigly harbored the attackers. We need it now, it may be available in 5 years or so by default but in reality we need to do it in 5-6 months, not years...
