He also refuted some reports which had said that the terrorists had snatched weapons during Monday's hit and run attack in the Pampore area in which two CRPF men were killed and 3 injured.

The IGP said those who carried out the attack had been identified and one of them was a Pakistani national.

"One was a Pakistani, Saifullah and the other a local.

"We will get them soon", Kumar said, adding that the use of virtual mobile numbers by the terrorists was a challenging development.

"We are exploring technological solutions to this problem", he said.

Answering a question on whether motorcycle-borne attacks by terrorists were increasing, the IGP said traffic jams and a large number of vehicles on the roads make checking of every single vehicle difficult..
