In his social media post, SSP Baramulla, Hussain remarked, “With terrorism almost entirely eradicated from the Kashmir valley, it’s in such challenging terrains that a few of these adversaries persist. Nevertheless, our brave officers in uniform remain resolute in tracking them down, whether they hide in forests, hills, or rat holes.”
