New Delhi: The number of incidents related to terrorist violence has shown a 60 per cent increase in first seven months of 2016 as compared to last year, the Rajya Sabha was informed on Wednesday.
Replying to a question by newly-elected Samajwadi Party MP Amar Singh, Minister of State for Home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said the number of terrorist violence incident in the state up to July was 117 in 2014, 101 in 2015 and 163 this year.
The minister said “cancellation of diplomatic initiative with militants by the central government” was not the reason for the rise in militancy.
“Since a larger number of terrorist neutralisation has taken place, the terrorist organisations based in Pakistan are now increasing their efforts to promote radicalisation through vested interest groups and social media and increase the attacks on security forces in Jammu and Kashmir forcing them to retaliate and give it a shape of civil resistance,” Ahir said in his reply.
