Weeks ahead of the by-elections in South Kashmir, security is stepped up in Jammu and Kashmir -- not for political reasons, but because of increased terrorist attacks in the state. South Kashmir will hold by-elections in two parliamentary constituencies -- Srinagar and Anantnag -- in April. On Sunday night, state minister Farooq Andrabi's house was attacked by a group of heavily-armed terrorists in Dooru in South Kashmir' Anantnag district. The ruling People's Democratic Party or PDP leader was not at home, but two policemen were injured in the attack. The terrorists escaped with four rifles.
