Copying from the article in the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks thread:

Terror Trail-V: The politics of abduction in Kashmir (IANS Exclusive)


The bleed India strategy has been predicated on keeping the pot boiling as nearly 700,000 Indian troops and paramilitary forces are at hyper vigil in Kashmir at very low cost to Pakistan, ensuring enormous expenditure to keep our military and polity bogged down.


As long as this strategy and situation remains in place, India should not let up it's offensive on the border.

Why the hell does the DDM keep accepting the paki lies of 700,000 troops and paramilitary? Shit! It might as well be 7 billion.

I have seen that in Kashmir many walls have
Slogans such as "Indians get out" etc. We must add the "Non" in front of all such slogans

Also all security personnel in J&K must have voting rights in local elections. The J&K govt must do more in ensuring that high quality civic services are made available to all citizens not just Valley residents

What ISI/TSPA will do is to escalate through increase supply of lethality to terror groups in valley - like armoured piercing bullets and mount attacks against security forces/bases.

What GoI will be doing is to wait and watch post passes melting. In my view GoI has to sustain the pressure until TSPA gives up terror completely.

All this is part of the direct covert negotiations at NSA level

Terror alerts issued for Awantipora and Srinagar Air bases

Do they need the SSG and additional troops in Afghanistan or Baluchistan or KP?

When the LOC heated up a year or two ago, i believe the PA had transferred troops from KP. In general XI Corp Peshawar has 2 Inf Divs. However there was a time when 2 more divs were added to it- 37 from I Corp and 19 from 10 Corp.

Bhai Chara of eastern frontier may have downed if they need them somewhere else.

Offcourse it is also possible Bhai Chara has been beaten into them ;-)

In troubled waters: 10 Chinese vessels found fishing illegally in Maharashtra,

Ten Chinese fishing vessels, which sought “emergency shelter” in Ratnagiri in Maharashtra during Cyclone Vayu, are under the Centre’s scanner for allegedly fishing illegally in Indian waters . The investigation into the case began on Monday, and more than 200 crew members on board are being called for questioning to decide the course of action.

According to the Indian authorities, the boats belong to the Fu Yuan Yu fleet, owned by Dongxinglong Ocean Fishing Company Ltd, based in Fu Zhou, Fujian province in China, and had entered the Indian waters on June 7, after taking permission from the Indian Coast Guard. However, on June 9, local fishermen complained that they were involved in fishing activities. “Shelter can’t be denied during cyclone emergencies like Cyclone Vayu. Using this opportunity, the 10 vessels got involved in illegal operations within India’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) – coastal waters where a country can claim exclusive rights for fishing and other economic activities,” said a senior official from the department of fisheries, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare. “The matter is being investigated through agencies and the Coast Guard. Deterrent action will be taken against all 10 vessels under violations of the Maritime Zones of India (Regulation) of Fishing by Foreign Vessels Act, 1981.”

The Indian Coast Guard said two boats have been brought to the Dabhol creek for further investigation, while the remaining eight vessels are anchored two nautical miles off the coast. These were the only trawlers fishing, amid the monsoon restriction. Ten vessels can fish around 80,000 tonnes of marine life in a month.

Ganesh B Nakhawa, chairman, National Purse Seine Fishermen Welfare Association, said the boats are equipped with 500,000 KW of LED lights for purse seine, squid jigging and pelagic trawling. “The fleet also has other damaging illegal gear on board such as drifting gill nets, bottom trawl nets and dolphin attracting devices etc. Such vessels are banned worldwide by many fisheries commission and are under investigation of many international agencies,” he said.

“The crew hails from Indonesia, Philippines and China. Of the 37 crew members of the two vessels who were questioned, the passports of 19 have expired. These vessels are depleting the Indian EEZ of important fish such as tuna, marlins, squids, mackerels and also causing damage to the ecology by targeting protected marine species such as sharks, turtles and dolphins.” Rajendra Jadhav, joint commissioner, Maharashtra fisheries department, said, “After confirming the Chinese trawlers were carrying out fishing activity in EEZ off the Maharashtra coast, we wrote a detailed letter to the Centre. The Centre further directed all agencies to take action. The fishermen said they had come for shelter, but fishing in EEZ area is illegal for international vessels. We are keeping a close watch on them.”

An Indian Coast Guard official said, “Apart from just fishery related violations, we are investigating the nationality of these fishermen, their documents, proper customs clearance and other suspected threats.”

HT has a copy of letters issued by the Centre and Intelligence Bureau ordering a probe, Fu Yuan Yu vessels have been named in illegal fishing cases in the past.According to the illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) Risk Intelligence, these vessels have been involved in illegal fishing for tuna in the southern Indian Ocean and South African waters in 2016. “Very little is known about the Chinese company, its ownership, management, movements and activities of the “Fu Yuan Yu” fleet in the high seas,” read a report by IUU Risk Intelligence from May 29, 2016.

Meanwhile, HT found the Chinese company that owns the vessels did not have a website or a functional telephone number listed on international data portals with details of the vessels.

Bangladeshi cattle smugglers maim BSF constable Anisur Rehman with crude bomb, jawan loses right arm.

The smugglers were armed to the teeth with country-made bombs, dahas, hasia, sticks and high-beam torches. The vigilant BSF troops intercepted and them as they looked to take cattle into Bangladesh with the support of Indian accomplices, said the agency.

When intercepted by BSF troops on the International Boundary, the smugglers encircled BSF constable Anisur Rehman and lobbed a powerful country-made bomb towards him which exploded nearby.

Constable Rehman, the agency said, displayed the highest level of valour and conviction towards his duty to not allow the smugglers to escape and fired at them with his non-lethal PAG gun.(WTF, We might as well leave the border completely open or just arm the BSF soldiers with flowers.)

Subsequently, the smugglers lobbed another country-made bomb towards him which exploded near his right hand. A bicycle nearby was also damaged and many pellets pierced Constable Rehman’s body.

During the incident, BSF troops from nearby ambushes rushed to the spot and found their comrade unconscious and grievously wounded. The smugglers managed to escape but left the cattle (most certainly Cows) behind.

Constable Anisur Rahman was immediately evacuated to Government Hospital Bangaon and was then shifted for specialised treatment to Medica Hospital, Kolkata. Unfortunately, his right hand had to be amputated. One Bangladeshi smuggler also sustained injuries while he fled, reports suggested.

Inspector General, South Bengal Frontier Y B Khurania took a very serious view of the incident and has directed all field formations under his command to keep adopting aggressive postures against trans-border criminals and those active on the Indo-Bangladesh Border.

BSF is also lodging a strong protest with their counterparts in the Border Guards Bangladesh to rein in the trans-border criminals.

PAG = Pump Action (Shot)Gun. Pretty lethal under the right circumstances but lacks range. Police forces across India have been armed with it. Famously known as Pellet Guns in J&K.

aka Shotgun. The shots can even be rock salt to reduce lethality.
