Terrorists planning to target Amarnath Yatra: Army

Speaking to media persons on July 17, 9 Rashtriya Rifles Sector Commander (Kulgam), Brigadier VS Thakur, said the inputs suggest that terrorists are planning to target the Amarnath Yatra.

"There are inputs that they (terrorists) would try their best to target the yatra.

NH-44 continues to be sensitive because that is the route that the yatris would take to go up to the north routes," he said.

"This operation has been conducted successfully 4 days before commencement of Amarnath Yatra.

We want to send a message to locals that we remain committed to ensuring that Amarnath Yatra will be conducted peacefully without any hindrance," he said on the killing of three Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists in an encounter in Kulgam.
