To prevent infiltration by Pakistani militants, India deploys 3,000 additional troops on LoC
The additional troops have been successful in foiling almost all major infiltration attempts and terrorists have been stopped from crossing over
The Indian Army has deployed an additional 3,000 troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu & Kashmir to prevent militants from Pakistani terror outfits from infiltrating into Kashmir.
An India Today report cited government sources saying that the additional troops have been successful in foiling almost all major infiltration attempts and terrorists have been stopped from crossing over. The report stated that there were a couple of extra battalions of the Pakistan Army on the LoC in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK). But it can’t be said whether they are there to build pressure on India in support of China. The report further states that even if Pakistani Army tries to do so, the Indian Army is well prepared to deal with such situations.
The sources also revealed that Pakistan has been trying to increase ceasefire violations. Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane had recently visited Srinagar to take stock of the ongoing security situation in the Valley. He also reviewed the forward locations on the LoC and looked at the operational preparedness.
