Jammu—Against the backdrop of Sunjwan militant attack, Army Commander Northern Command Lt Gen D Anbu on Wednesday said that militant outfits are hand in glove and planning attacks in the State, but the Army is well equipped and prepared to foil their “nefarious designs”.
“All three terrorist outfits namely HM, JeM or LeT are hand in glove whether it is in the Valley or in Jammu and there is no differentiation as they keep jumping from one ‘Tanzeem’ to another,” said the Army Commander while addressing a press conference in Udhampur after Investiture Ceremony of Northern Command.
He said, “anybody who picks up arms and is against the state, is a terrorist and we will deal with them suitably as Army know how to tackle them.”
The reply came to a query seeking detail that Lashkar and Jaish had joined hands to carry attacks in Kashmir and Jammu respectively.
“So far Rs 364 crores has been spent on security gadgets in the state,” he added and said that Army is having a large number of small units and it difficult to secure properly with immediate priority but still, they are not only being secured physically but also with installation of gadgets.
