The government has decided to hit hard the separatists . It has now announced that the security of separatist leaders in Jammu and Kashmir including Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has been withdrawn. But according to media reports Syed Ali Shah Geelani is not in the list. The move comes in the wake of the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir that left 40 CRPF personnel dead.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh, during his visit to Srinagar , had said security given to people getting funds from Pakistan and its snooping agency ISI should be reviewed.
On Friday (February 15), Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has reportedly said that the government was planning to review the security of the people working at the behest of Pakistan and its intelligence agency ISI in an apparent reference to separatist leaders.
“There are elements and forces who take money from Pakistan and the ISI. I have asked the officials concerned to review their security,” Singh told reporters at the end of his day-long visit to Kashmir.
The home minister said some elements in Jammu and Kashmir had links with the Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence
and terrorist organisation, but the government would defeat their designs.
“Such people are playing with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and the future of the state’s youth. Our war against terror is in a decisive phase and I want to assure the nation that we will win it,” he said.
The home minister, who arrived in the state following the worst terror attack on security forces in the past three decades, also visited the injured jawans undergoing treatment at a hospital.
