Srinagar : Security forces posted in Kashmir have raised several bunkers in Srinagar over the past two to three weeks amid reports that as many as 60 militants may have been pushed into India from Pakistan.
The bunkers are primarily located in areas that house police and other government offices.
Bunkers were a common sight in Kashmir during militancy days. Their comeback follows the return of another marker of those times — the slogan, “only one solution, gun solution” — seemingly belying claims that the Valley was returning to normalcy.
Jammu & Kashmir has been under a severe communication lockdown since it was stripped of its special status in the first week of August.
Reports since then have pointed to an increased thrust from across the border to push militants into Kashmir to tap local resentment about the curbs.
