"This US-made M4 carbine is presently with a lot of armies with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

Maj. Gen. B.S. Raju, commander of the Rashtriya Rifles' Victor Force, told the media conference, "This US made M4 carbine is presently with a lot of armies with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation". He said around 16 to 20 JeM militants were still operating in the Valley.

Azhar is a global terror mastermind who founded Jaish after securing his release following the hijack of IC 814, which took place in 1999.

A photo of a militant flaunting an M4 rifle had gone viral in Kashmiri social media circles last week. "But we are fully capable of dealing with such situations", he said reiterating the appeal to the civilians not to try to disrupt the anti-militancy operations.

Criticizing Indian authorities, Geelani said that instead of taking measures to resolve long pending issue in its historical perspective, they want to thrust their choice through barrel of gun.
