In Ramadan: 21 militants, 04 security forces personnel killed so far

Forces have been hyper-active in their anti-militancy operations, across the Kashmir valley, as the militants have been hitting “softer” targets – including non-locals and politically affiliated locals.

Srinagar: In the holy month of Ramadan 25 have been killed thus far – 21 of them militants and four government forces’ personnel.
