Kashmir in clutches of Violence; Militants attack near Rashtriya Rifles camp in Handwara

There is no peradventure about the fact that the tension between India and Pakistan are witnessing an all time low and its direct effect is immersing the beautiful valley of Kashmir towards a darker nodus. The recent events and attacks on Army Base camps in the valley have created a deleterious situation for the locals as ultimately they are suffering more than anyone else. But, Pakistan doesn’t seem to learn from its previous experiences and is thus not refraining from their actions. The attack near a paramilitary camp at Langate in Handwara of Kupwara district by militants is the latest escapade in the issue. The militants opened fire on the militants on Thursday morning but security forces have retaliated with a tough response and killed 3 militant attackers.

Militants attacked the Rashtriya Rifles camp at around 6 am for more than 20 minutes. The area got cordoned off and various search operations were launched to retaliate. It lead to an encounter between the security forces and militants in a nearby apple orchard. As per reports, the militants tried to breach a perimeter fence of the camp but were pushed back successfully by the forces.

This cowardly act is the second example of the cheap tactics of Pakistan after the major attack on September 18 on Uri army base camp which killed total 19 Indian brave hearts.
Indian Army and Government have provided enough proofs of Pakistan’s involvement in sponsoring the militants camps where they are trained and later send to India for creating mass destruction. Such cross-border terrorism and border incursions have lead to frosty relations between the two countries and a major breakdown in diplomatic ties.
