Amid reports that Islamic State may have a presence in Jammu and Kashmir even if its still a fringe group, the Union Home Ministry has come out with a categorical denial of any such fact.
A statement from Union Home Ministry said that there is no physical infrastructure or manpower of the Islamic State in the Valley.
need be mentioned that the issue came to debate when the outfit claimed responsibility
for the killing of a policeman Farooq Ahmad Yatoo in Jammu & Kashmir on Sunday.
It has now emerged that the attack itself could have come from Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
A day after the Islamic State’s channel Amaq claimed responsibility for the killing of a policeman in Srinagar, J&K police said it could be a lone wolf attack.
