Indian Military airlifts 10,000 soldiers for a big operation: Indian media report

*SRINAGAR - A*

major crackdown on separatists in Jammu and Kashmir began last night.

Indian government has sent around 10,000 soldiers of various paramilitary forces to the state. The massive crackdown, which happened through the night, resulted in the arrest of around 130 people, mainly separatists from the Jamaat-e-Islami (Kashmir) and the Hurriyat Conference. This included Jamaat-e-Islami chief Abdul Hamid Fayaz and Hurriyat Conference's Yasin Malik.

The Jamaat-e-Islami in Jammu and Kashmir was once considered to be the so-called "political wing" of terror group Hizb-ul-Mujahdeen. The police have termed the detentions as routine, saying "Separatists and potential stone-throwers have been arrested in the past as well, as a preventive measure." by Taboola link: Sponsored Links link: . link Early Symptoms of Thyroid Disease You Cannot IgnoreHealth & Human Research link

A notice from the Home Ministry in New Delhi late on Friday evening led to "100 additional companies of paramilitary soldiers" being airlifted to Srinagar, where the Jammu and Kashmir police and existing security forces worked through the night rolling out their deployment plan link for the next few days.

Depending on the paramilitary force, a 'company' of soldiers typically consists of between 80 and 150 soldiers, suggesting that last evening's order by the Ministry of Home Affairs would see around 10,000 soldiers airlifted to Srinagar. Promoted: In Stores
