Additional forces rushed to Kashmir in view of major terror attack threat, NSA monitoring situation

Pakistan-based terrorist groups are planning to carry out a major attack in the Kashmir valley, prompting the government to rush additional troops to strengthen the counter-terrorist grid in the area.

“After receiving inputs about the terrorist attack threat, NSA Ajit Doval held a meeting of counter-terrorism grid in Jammu and Kashmir to review the security situation in the Kashmir valley. After this assessment by the NSA, the government felt the need for deploying additional troops there,” top government sources said here.

The Centre’s decision to deploy 100 more companies of paramilitary forces in J&K had fuelled rumour-mongering about ‘impending’ abrogation of Articles 35A and 370. These two Articles of the Constitution give special status to the state.
