Srinagar: There is a possibility that US forces pull-out from Afghanistan may push some militants into Kashmir said General officer Commanding (GoC) of Srinagar-based army’s 15 Corps Lieutenant General D P Pandey on Friday.
He was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a passing—out parade at JAKLI Regimental centre Rangreth on Srinagar on Srinagar outskirts.
“Whatever happened 30 year ago caused a huge distress to the people of Kashmir. Yes, there is a possibility that US forces pull-out from Afghanistan may push some militants into Kashmir,” he said, adding that ‘some people who are fond of freedom (Azadi) must ponder over what is the situation across LoC and the Pakistan—Afghanistan border’.
The GoC 15 Corps was replying to a query whether US—forces pull—out from Afghanistan would have some sort of fall on Kashmir.
