In recent months, Kashmir has witnessed fresh clashes between the civilians and the security forces. In many reports, it has been shown that the local stone pelting crowd often help the militants to escape and the crowd usually attacks the police forces where operations against the militants were carried. According to the intelligence reports, the stone pelting crowds were paid by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to disturb peace in the valley.

She said that there must be dialogues with Pakistan to resolve the issue.
