Omar Abdullah compliments security forces but Police officers are a worried lot

J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah may have complimented the security forces for their swift response and containing the damage but the senior police authorities are a worried lot.

In a span of six months the heavily armed group of fidayeens have exposed the ‘security bandobast’ and penetrated deep inside the borders to launch an audacious terror strike at the behest of their handlers in Pakistan.

On Friday despite receiving flash message around 4.47 a.m about the possible militant strike in the police control room it took more than two and half hours  for the alert security forces to establish first contact with the fidayeens. 

According to the Defence PRO in Jammu the first contact with the fidayeen was made around 7.30 a.m near Janglote area in Kathua outside the army camp.

Between Dayalachak and Janglote, the 22 km of distance can be easily covered in 30-40 minutes but it took more than two hours for the security forces to establish first contact.

No where in the security establishment is aware of the fact where and how the fidayeens spent the time and how they went untraceble on the radar of the security forces between Dayalachak and Janglote.

 Outside the army camp the fidayeens failed to storm the army camp and at least two of them were neutralised in the preliminary exchange of fire and the third fidayeen held the fort and was neutralised around 4.00 p.m when both the sides had exchanged heavy fire power. In the coming days as canvassing will take centre stage the security forces need to exercise extra vigil and stay alert to prevent similar strike affecting the day to day lives of citizens of the state.
