Since January 1, 2020, 351 terrorists have been killed in various encounters in the Kashmir Valley. During this, three civilians also died due to cross-firing. IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar gave this information.
In a conversation after three TRF terrorists were killed in an encounter with the police in Srinagar, he said that 144 terrorists had been killed so far this year. During this, two civilians have also been killed in the grip of cross-firing. He, however, did not say that the two civilians killed in the cross-firing were the same ones who were killed in the November 15 encounter at Hyderpora and were told to be aides of the terrorists at that time.
The IGP said that in 2020, the police in Kashmir, in collaboration with various security agencies, had killed 207 terrorists in different encounters. Last year only one civilian was killed in the cross-firing. He said that since January 1, 2020, 351 terrorists have been killed in the Valley, and three civilians have been killed in cross-firing. He said that if we talk about the ongoing terrorist violence in Kashmir for the last three decades, then the number of terrorists killed in cross-firing is the lowest in the previous two years.
