SRINAGAR: After the alleged hit list of 39 people, including journalists and political activists, appeared on a website, the J&K Police has increased the surveillance and offered safe accommodation to scribes to prevent any militant attacks on them.

The hit list includes 27 Kashmir-based journalists and 12 political and social activists. The post, which alleged that the 39 people were working under the Indian payroll, was deleted later. The list has allegedly categorised the 39 as A+, A, B and C.
