No active terrorists in 3 Kashmir districts; LeT, JeM headless: ADGP Kumar

Srinagar, Nov 26 (PTI) Three districts in Kashmir have zero "active terrorists" currently even as two prominent terror organisations, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed, have gone "headless" after security forces neutralised their operatives and commanders, a senior police officer said on Saturday.

He identified the three "terrorist-free" districts as Bandipora, Kupwara and Ganderbal.

The Kashmir region, that comprises 13 police districts, has 81 terrorists at present with 29 being local while 52 are of foreign origin (Pakistanis), Additional Director General of Police (Kashmir zone) Vijay Kumar said.
