    Demonetization leaves militants cashless, claims SDGP

    Srinagar, Dec 16 : After a couple of bank robbery incidents in Valley, Kashmir Police Friday said that militants operating in Kashmir are shot of money and to fatten their coffers they have started looting the banks here.

    “Demonetization badly affected the militants operating in Kashmir Valley. They are short of money and are finding way and means to collect it. The bank robbery incidents in Kashmir are purely the fall out of demonetization plan,” Special Director General of Police and Incharge Law and Order SP Vaid told news agency CNS.

    SP Vaid said that all measures have been taken to stop bank robbery incidents in the future.  “We are working on a plan. In fact we have clues and have identified the men involved in such incidents,” he said.

    Pertinently, unidentified gunmen have so far struck thrice and looted cash from the branches of Jammu and Kashmir Bank at Budgam and Pulwama.
