Srinagar: General officer Commanding (GoC) of Srinagar based army’s 15 Corps Lieutenant General D P Pandey said that anti-militancy operations launched by the army in the past few days are based on human intelligence and he would not like to connect any operation with the events that took place in Srinagar or elsewhere.
He, however, said that security forces and the people of Kashmir need to be very careful to keep the communal harmony intact. Talking to reporters on the side-lines of a function at SKICC here, the GoC Pandey said that all the anti-militancy operations launched in the past few days were based on human intelligence.
“I would not like to connect these operations with any of the events that took place in Srinagar or elsewhere,” he said in an obvious reference to the recent targeted killings in Srinagar.
Replying to a query, the GoC Pandey said that the civilian killings are highly condemnable and that security forces and the people need to be very careful to keep the communal harmony intact.
