Reports say that inputs have also been received that terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen is planning to attack religious leaders in the Valley. Besides, there are inputs that Pakistan-based terror outfits Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and The Resistance Front (TRF) could target sarpanches and non-local people in Kashmir.
The alerts have been sounded amid a series of attacks on migrant workers in Jammu and Kashmir by terrorists. A total of 11 migrants have lost their lives in the last month as terrorists have started targeting civilians.
Earlier on Sunday, terrorists shot dead two workers from Bihar and injured another after barging into their accommodation in Kulgam in south Kashmir, the latest in a series of attacks on non-locals prompting the police to direct that all such labourers in the Valley be brought to nearest security camps immediately.
This was the third terror attack on non-local workers in less than 24 hours. A street vendor from Bihar and a carpenter from Uttar Pradesh were shot dead by the ultras on Saturday evening. So far this month, 11 people have lost their lives in shootings targeting civilians.
