Centre Plans To Reduce Kashmir Separatists’ Security, Curb Their Foreign Travel

Miffed with Kashmir’s separatists over cold shoulder treatment given to MPs who were part of the all-party delegation that visited the state, the Centre is considering to scale down their security.

The home ministry’s tough stand came after the snub by the Hurriyat leaders who refused to meet some members of the all-party delegation.

Centre might also curb separatist leaders foreign travel by withdrawing their passports and denying travel documents in some cases.

Besides this, sources told PTI that the Centre will scrutinise their bank accounts and complete pending investigations in cases against them.

According to government sources, through these moves, the Centre wants to send out a strong message against those provoking youths in Kashmir Valley to create disturbance.

The valley has been in unrest after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8. The final decision on these issues, however, will be taken after the all-party delegation, which visited the troubled state, meets here tomorrow and consultations at the highest level of the government, sources said.
