No terrorist wanted to take up the leadership role in Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) after India’s retaliation to the Pulwama terror attack of 2019, said Lt General (R) KJS Dhillon on Monday. Dhillon was the commanding officer of the 15 Corps in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir when the 2019 Pulwama attack took place.

While speaking to media, he asserted that the security forces eliminated the module behind the Pulwama attack led by a Pakistani national Kamran within 100 hours of the attack. He then added that after security forces’ operations against Jaish-e-Mohammed, their terrorists were so scared of dying that nobody wanted to take the leadership role.

“We have intercepts where calls from Pakistan would ask terrorists to take a leadership role but they would refuse,” said Dhillon.

On February 14, 2019, a suicide bomber had rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into a bus that was part of a CRPF convoy. The convoy had 78 buses in which around 2,500 personnel were travelling from Jammu to Srinagar.

In retaliation, India bombed several terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad located in Pakistan’s Balakot which resulted in the killing of around 300-350 terrorists.

Talking about Pakistan’s involvement in terror activities in India, Lt Gen (R) KJS Dhillon said, “Pakistan Army, ISI and terrorist organisations work in unison. No one can cross LoC without the active participation and guidance of Pakistani Army.”

“We apprehended Pakistani nationals on LoC in Gulmarg sector who were brought into LoC by Pak post opposite to our post,” he said.
