“Number of militants is more in South Kashmir. We have started operations in North Kashmir. Recently two local LeT militants were killed in Sopore. They were locals, but they had carried a lot of incidents. We are focusing on that (North), but there are militants in South Kashmir, and it is on priority,” he said. “In May first week, there were huge losses on our side and a perception became that militants had an upper hand. In North Kashmir, the number of militants is still less. Whatever the less number is, we will neutralise them soon.”
