J&K Violence : Another intercept sent to Home Ministry

New Delhi, July 9

The intelligence agencies have forwarded yet another telephonic intercept to the Home Ministry, which indicates of more clear signs of linkages from Pakistan-based handlers. Security agencies reveal how a Hizbul Mujahideen activist based in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir enquires from a local contact about the status of protests and government response.

The undated transcripts of the conversation describe a person in Shopian in South Kashmir informing Abu Inquilabi about protests, curfew and troop movement into Srinagar. Abu Inquilabi is the sector commander of the Hizbul Mujahideen. This is the intercept, a copy of which is with The Tribune.

"Kya baat hui hai yaar (what has happened, friend?)," asks Inquilabi. "Pata nahi, halat kharab huyi hai (I do not know, the situation has deteriorated)," responds the unidentified person from Shopian, according to the transcripts.

"Yeh Hindustani fauj panga le rahi hai Kashmiriyon ke saath. Yeh kahan chhodegi inko (The Indian Army is troubling Kashmiris. It will not spare them)," remarks Inquilabi. This is being seen a clear signal that the Army has had an impact.

"Chhodte nahi yeh (They don't spare)," is the response. Then Inquilabi asks whether stone pelting has begun and the answer is in affirmative.

The Shopian-based person says that an announcement had been made in the morning that all should participate in the protest. He then says that security forces have clamped curfew at night itself.

Inquilabi says that he has heard about more Army being requisitioned. The response is, "yes, some has reached."

Inquilabi then asks, "was Army not there earlier?" His contact replies that it is in some strength in Srinagar, but in Shopian and Pulwama it is the CRPF and the police.
