Special talk with Corps Commander Lt Gen DP Pandey

Zee Media correspondent Manish Shukla had an exclusive conversation with GOC 15 Corps Commander Lt Gen DP Pandey. General DP Pandey spoke openly on the terrorists operating in the valley, the increasing number of infiltration and the security of the common people.

Question- Terrorists are continuously targeting the common people, which includes Kashmiri Pandits and Sikhs?

Answer- The situation in Kashmir was very good for some time. A very good atmosphere of peace and stability was created. But the enemies of our country do not want that there should be an atmosphere of peace in Kashmir. For this they are ready to do anything. This is their conspiracy and I am sure this is a temporary phase, we will get it under control. The atmosphere that has happened today is according to a well thought out strategy. The enemies have prepared the concept of a hybrid terrorist, inside which they kill anyone using a pistol. All this is a well thought out strategy and work is going on on it. I am sure that J&K Police is fully capable and they will control this thing.

Question- Terrorists are using small arms like pistols for attack. Is there a special strategy of terrorists behind this?

Answer- They know that the rest of their strategy is not working and if they carry big weapons, they will be caught. As soon as someone walks with a weapon, we get input. Local people tell us that a terrorist is roaming here and there the terrorist is killed after an encounter. In the hybrid terrorist concept, a job worker, shop worker or college student kills a target for a small amount of money and then returns to his work like a normal person. It is a bit difficult to catch such a person, because even the police do not know about his criminal record, but we think that we will solve it too.

Question- How many terrorists are active in the valley now and when will the situation in the valley get better in the coming time?

Answer- This year there is a lot of improvement from before and there is a lot of decline in the cases of infiltration. There have been about 20 incidents of infiltration this year, which is much less than last year. Though the launch pads are full of terrorists and their efforts are on for the last three months, but we are foiling their efforts. Inside Uri, we killed a foreign terrorist and caught one alive, while four had fled across the LoC. We had seized a huge quantity of weapons from the terrorists in the same area. All this action is going on on the LoC. Terror-recruitment has also decreased significantly in the hinterland as compared to the last 2-3 years and the number of foreign terrorists in Kashmir has also decreased. Earlier there were 250-300 total terrorists, they are running below 200 in today’s numbers. Our effort is to stay below 200 so that the situation can be improved with more speed.

Question- It is being said that the access of American weapons from Afghanistan has gone to the terrorists. These weapons have come to the terrorists in PoK. Do you see any effect of this on Kashmir?

Answer- We have to see everything that what is happening outside and what is happening in PoK. If there is peace here, obviously the enemies of our country will not like this thing. In such a situation, they will make some strategy and try to spoil the situation, but our job is to remain dominant on the LoC. It is going on and counter terror operation is also going on.

Question- The number of infiltration on the border has increased suddenly and attempts are being made to infiltrate continuously. What kind of logic is that?

Answer- The launch pads were already full, but they did not anticipate that there would be such rapid development and there would be a stable environment. The way tourism is happening and functions are happening. Even after so many killings, it is not that cancellations are happening here and seeing this, our enemy gets in trouble. Our enemies are outside and some are inside as well. I think it was their motive to disturb the peace, but you should understand that they know that this situation has gone out of their hands now. They will try to spoil the communal harmony. But the people here understand everything. I like it very much that our national media has acted very intelligently and did not try to capitalize on the action taken in the last 2-3 weeks. I think it will have a positive effect.
