Foreign militants outnumber local militants in North Kashmir

Taking the security agencies to surprise, foreign militants outnumber the local militants in north Kashmir- in three districts of Baramulla, Bandipora and Kupwara.

The sudden surge in number has forced the police to restrict the movement of mainstream leaders and elected representatives because of fears of attacks on them. According to latest report, there are about 40 to 50 foreign militants in north Kashmir, whereas the local militants are only 11.
