The situation in Kashmir between Eid-ul-Fitr and Amarnath Yatra will depend on the fact whether a group of Lashker-e-Taiba terrorist suspected to be at large will strike during the extension of Ramzan ceasefire, top government sources told India Today.

Eid-ul-Fitr is supposed to be on June 17, whereas the Amarnath Yatra is likely to begin from June 26.

New Delhi has alarmed security agencies like CRPF, BSF and Army.

"The ceasefire has been received well by the people of Kashmir," top officials said, "and it makes sense to extend the ceasefire to allow a political process to start," he added.

Stonepelting has dropped drastically since the Ramzan ceasefire was announced but number of grenade throwing incidents and recruitment of locals by terror organisations are believed to have increased, as per data collected by the J&K government.

Sources said as many as 23 local boys were recruited during the first two and half weeks of the ceasefire whereas about 100-odd local boys were recruited from January to April 2018.

Security agencies have warned the government about the possible attacks in the interim between Eid-ul-Fitr and Amarnath Yatra by a group of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist who are at large.

"If the terrorist are able to evade the dragnet of security forces and carry out a major attack then extension of the ceasefire may not be possible," the officer said.

The security forces have killed at least 22 terrorists during the Ramzan ceasefire that was announced on May 16. As many as six terrorist were killed in Keran sector yesterday when they tried to infiltrate.

Earlier, on May 29 Director General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of India and Pakistan agreed to honour the 2003 ceasefire arrangement along the LoC. Despite the reaffirmation between military top brass of the two countries, attempted infiltration bids by terrorists continue.

Last week, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval met BSF chief and officials of the military to take stock of the ceasefire. It is understood that forces were asked not to take pro-active measures but follow the terms of ceasefire and maintain calm.

The ceasefire within the valley allows forces to retaliate when attacked and also carry out intelligence based operations whereas forces along the LoC and the international border have been allowed to retaliate when sanctity of the borders are violated.
