Mass Detentions in Kashmir After the Shooting of Two Teachers

The Jammu Kashmir Police has detained over 700 people in response to the killing of seven minorities.

Among those detained were reportedly over-ground workers (OGWs) of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Al-Badr, and The Resistance Front (TRF) with suspected links to banned religious and militant groups.

“No stone will be left unturned to find the killers,” an anonymous police official told AFP. 

The Resistance Front, a newly formed militia took responsibility for the killings and accused the victims of being  “occupier mercenary forces and occupier stooges”.

Currently, there are still reports of violence in the area after four troops were killed near the Line of Control (LoC).

“A JCO (junior commissioned officer) and four soldiers were killed during a search operation probably by infiltrators… The operation is ongoing,” reported Colonel Devender Anand.
