One of the police officials said that Burhan is hiding somewhere in South Kashmir. And the sources said that from the last few years they are trying hard to strengthen their base in the valley and the department is happy with the results they are getting from it.
In the form of incentive, government has even hiked the bounty for the “most wanted militants”.
