Accordimg to Kashmir Indepth, in Kashmir, rumour mills were ripe that something untoward was going to happen in the wake of suicide attack on the CRPF convoy at Lethpora resulting in the death of 40 CRPF men and injuries to two dozen others.

Kashmiris have been under tremendous level of fear since February 14 and rumours spilling over across the trouble-ravaged Valley. “Ever since the Lethpora attack took place, Kashmir is under tight grip of rumours. There is fear all over with people stocking essentials including medecines,” said Ibrahim Khan , resident of Lal Chowk.

He said that finally rumours turned true as Delhi launched air strike in Pakistan.
