So far, four former militants or active supporters of the separatist movement have been killed in Sopore town during the last six days. The latest was Aijaz Ahmad Reshi, a former militant belonging to Harkat-ul-Mujahideen group, who was killed on Monday in Mundji locality of Sopore.
It all started last month when a lesser known guerrilla group calling itself ‘Lashkar-e-Islam’ claimed responsibility for attacks on people owning cell phone tower land and those associated directly with the mobile phone operations in Sopore town.
Lashkar-e-Islami had threatened people and companies of dire consequences if they did not stop cell phone operations in the Valley.
