NEW DELHI :
PAKISTAN continues to push terrorists into India and has increased terror activities in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) even as the FATF’s sword hangs on its head. In a video accessed by ANI, it can be clearly seen that Pakistani troops or terrorists backed by Islamabad attempted BAT action force crossing the border and were immediately eliminated.
According to Army sources, Pakistan has made several infiltration bids in the recent past; two to three of these specific instances were successfully foiled by the Indian troops. “Post Article 370 abrogation, numbers of launch pads have been activated by the Pakistani Army close to our own posts along the Line of Control (LoC) and these are only a few hundred meters to 2 km from the LoC,” Indian Army sources said. “These launch pads in the areas facing Gurez, Machchal, Keran, Tangdhar, Uri, Poonch, Naushera, Sunderbani, RS Pura, Ramgarh, Kathua harbour more than 250 terrorists,” they said.
Army sources said that a communication centre has been activated in the Kalighati area since early August to coordinate and facilitate infiltration. “It is also emerging that the recruitment of terrorists in Pakistan’s Punjab has commenced. Daura-e-Aam of LeT and JeM have also begun their training. These training activities are being conducted in Muzaffarabad-Manshera-Kotli clusters,” the sources said.
