Kashmir under panic, confusion and disbelief after India’s surgical strikes

Panic, confusion and disbelief gripped Kashmir residents on Thursday as India said it carried out surgical strikes at terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) inflicting heavy casualties on terrorists and their supporters.

Reports from Uri sector in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district, where cross-border terrorist attack at an army camp on September 18 left 18 Indian troops killed, said people living close to the LoC have already started migrating to safer areas.

People were seen rushing home earlier than usual in Srinagar as the news of the surgical strikes by Indian special forces spread.

The Kashmir Valley has been shut for 83 consecutive days, following the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani. However, there is no curfew anywhere in the valley. People have started shifting with their families to safer places away from the LoC in Uri areas after today’s development,” an official told IANS.
