Active shooting/ ‘Lone wolf’ terrorism is an increasing epidemic. Every year, the world over, hundreds of people die or get injured due to active shooter events. Motives of the active shooters who are involved in these events can range from terrorism, radical ideologies to growing anger, domestic disputes etc. Following the recent incidents of mass shooting, a theory of ‘Lone Wolf Terrorism’ has emerged wherein the offender is a ‘Wolf in Sheep Clothes’.
In the Asia Pacific context, the threat of terrorists/anti-national elements and separatists have been choosing softer targets and in the recent past the region has witnessed a number of similar attacks, with Mumbai 2008, ‘26/11’ and Dhaka 2016 being the deadliest. Intelligence agencies have warned that in the near future a number of unpredictable attacks may be carried out on targets that convey more international media hype. Soft targets such as schools, grocery stores, night clubs can also be targeted by not only terrorists but by anyone who has access to guns and has violent intentions. It is therefore imperative that security functions in private institutions are geared up to meet this threat by training their employees.
