“The data... has been obtained from police records available from time to time. This does not reflect the exact number and details of the incident,” the report added.

The NBDC report, published last week, also reported Jammu and Kashmir saw a rise of over 120% in blast and IED related incidents after the killing of militant Burhan Wani in the valley in July 2016.

While 14 IED bombing incidents were reported in J&K in 2015, the numbers went up to 31 last year.

“Jammu and Kashmir saw an increase in blast incidents and casualties particularly after the death of Burhan Wani,” the report read.
