Srinagar, Oct 7: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Thursday said that the recent terror attacks in the union territory are part of a well-thought-out conspiracy in the backdrop of increasing tourist influx and planned industrial investment in Kashmir.
The targetted terror attacks on innocents are part of an attempt to disturb communal harmony here. All efforts will be made to ensure that (terrorists’) attempts don’t succeed, he added.
Security agencies have been given a free hand to take the strictest action against such people (terrorists). Those who have committed these crimes will soon be brought to justice, the Lieutenant Governor said.
The union territory has reported five terror attacks in the last three days including two teachers, a street hawker, and a businessman.
Two government teachers were killed by terrorists in the Eidgah area of Srinagar earlier in the day. Also on Tuesday, three civilians including a street hawker and a businessman were shot dead by terrorists in separate incidents in a single day in the union territory.
