“We all are well aware this year Army and Police is on a mission to give a chance to militants to come back to mainstream and surrender. Due to this Pakistan got frustrated to see the development. Pakistan handlers of militant outfits are on fire. They have operated and adopted modes of operende to kill unarmed police and Civilian via Pistol. This is new trend by Pakistan to use Pistol in Kashmir as it is easy to carry out strikes,” he added.
