Srinagar: The General Officer Commanding (GOC) of 15 Corps, Lieutenant General Subrata Saha, on Sunday revealed that security personnel in the state have killed a larger number of terrorists this year, as compared to 2013, pegging the total number of incendiaries killed at close to one hundred.


"So far, in 2014, a total of 145 terrorists have been neutralized, while the number of terrorists killed is 98. The army was also involved in two more [cases]... a total of hundred terrorists have been killed. In counter infiltration the number of terrorists eliminated has also been substantially higher, with 51 killed," Lt. Gen. Saha told mediapersons here.


"However, in 2013, a total of 89 terrorists were neutralized and 62 terrorists were killed," he added.


Jammu and Kashmir, which is in the midst of its five-phase state assembly elections, on Friday faced four terror attacks, which were aimed at undermining the legitimacy of the democratic process.


These attacks have seen as an affront to various political parties, who had previously stated that the people of the state had chosen ballots, not bullets to voice their opinion.
