SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Police on Tuesday denied that any weapon was snatched by militants during the hit and run attack in which two Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were killed.
Vijay Kumar, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kashmir zone said the situation in Kashmir was under control.
He also refuted some reports which had said that the militants had snatched weapons during Monday’s hit and run attack in the Pampore area in which two CRPF men were killed and 3 injured.
The IGP said those who carried out the attack had been identified and one of them was a Pakistani national.
“One was a Pakistani, Saifullah and the other a local. We will get them soon,” Kumar said, adding that the use of virtual mobile numbers by the militants was a challenging development.
“We are exploring technological solutions to this problem,” he said.
Answering a question on whether motorcycle-borne attacks by militants were increasing, the IGP said traffic jams and a large number of vehicles on the roads make checking of every single vehicle difficult. (IANS)
