New Delhi, Nov 23: The unrest in Jammu and Kashmir has come down and normalcy is gradually being restored. However, Intelligence Bureau officials have issued a warning that the Hurriyat leaders are planning yet another stir in the months to come.
"Demonetisation has taken a toll on the Hurriyat as well. However, they are gradually gathering funds to launch a fresh stir," the Intelligence Bureau warns.
While, on one hand, the Hurriyat plans on launching a fresh stir, on the other Pakistan is also attempting to up the infiltrations. It could be a deadly cocktail,IB officials warn while also adding that the local police needs to be on high alert.
The Hurriyat, in particular, would be looking to hit back as several plans hatched by them in the recent weeks have been foiled. The successful conduct of the recently held examinations was a major set back to them.
The Hurriyat leaders had tried their best to disrupt examinations. However, the grit of the students and parents coupled with heavy security ensured that the examinations went on peacefully.
IB officials say that currently these leaders are facing an immense cash crunch. All the money they had to fuel the protests were in black.
The November 8 decision made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi rendered Rs 500 and 1,000 notes useless. Currently the Hurriyat leaders are in the process of raising funds and once this task is complete they will look to fuel tensions in the Valley, the IB official said.
The Financial Intelligence Unit is closely monitoring the transactions of separatists, officials also added.
