End to Terrorism Nowhere in Sight in Kashmir as Anniversary of Revocation of Article 370 Nears
More than 100 terrorists have been killed in the valley since April. The Indian government earlier claimed that terror activities were reduced in the valley after the revocation of the temporary special status under Article 370. However, on Thursday, during a hearing of plea on the restoration of 4G internet networks in the valley, government officials acknowledged that terrorism has increased in Jammu and Kashmir

Last week, the Indian Army gunned down terrorists who had allegedly infiltrated from the Pakistan side along the Line of Control (LoC). The army claimed that about 300 terrorists are at launchpads to cross the LoC to enter the Indian side of Kashmir. 

India accused Pakistan of harbouring terrorists and for its role in the unrest in Kashmir, while Islamabad has refuted the allegations by accusing New Delhi of committing atrocities against Kashmiris.
