New Delhi: – A senior official from the Jammu and Kashmir police said that the Indian security forces had launched an aggressive campaign against the terrorists in southern Kashmir, and soon, terrorism will be eliminated from Kashmir. In the last 24 hours, eight terrorists were killed in two encounters, in the Shopian and Pulwama districts of Jammu and Kashmir. Vijay Kumar, the Inspector General of Jammu and Kashmir police, has expressed this with confidence. Kumar also indicated that a similar aggressive campaign would soon be launched even in north Kashmir.
Security forces killed three terrorists in the Mij area, in Pampore in the Pulwama district. This encounter was going on since Thursday.

Lieutenant General Baggavalli Somashekar Raju and Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh informed that the security forces succeeded in exterminating five terrorists on Friday.
Nearly 100 terrorists have been killed in the current year. Out of these, 50 terrorists were from the terrorist organisation Hizbul Mujahideen. Whereas, 20 each were from the terrorist organisations Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba. In the last few months, the number of recruitments of the youth in these terrorist organisations has seen a decline. Youth are being dissuaded from joining the terrorist organisations. But DGP Dilbag Singh clarified that despite this if some youth join the terrorist organisations, they will be eliminated.
