The number is less than the last year’s terrorist entered the valley across the border
NEW DELHI| The Monday released Intelligence report says 135 Pakistan based terrorist have invaded in Kashmir valley since the abrogation of Article 370. In the past three months, the Indian army has process retaliation to keep the state guarded.
North Block sources said the abrogation of Article 370 by India led to increasing the numbers of attacks in Kashmir. “Pakistan’s review by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has led to reduction of terrorist activities and movement along the border between May and July but were stepped up again in August,” an official said.
The number is less compared to last year’s when as many as 143 terrorists entered the Valley from across the border, sources added.
Security has tightened in Jammu & Kashmir underway the attacks. The Security forces had spotted over 25 entry routes along the Indo-Pak border in Jammu & Kashmir. Two-Three-Tier security was put in place, including an anti-infiltration obstacle system of border fencing along these routes. Apart from the first tier of security of army and BSF, village defence committees (VDCs) along the LoC and IB, police were activated and checkpoints have come up in areas around the border.
“The sharp rise in infiltration indicates that militants have found new routes to enter the Valley. They have not carried out any major attack so far but have been ensuring civil curfew by locals,” said a senior official.
Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) the most famous terror group of Pakistan have incorporate launch pads and terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
The Centre’s decision to withdraw special status to Jammu and Kashmir had resulted in a sharp reaction from the Imran Khan-led Pakistan government with Islamabad downgrading diplomatic ties with New Delhi. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, in a recent interview to French daily Le Monde at Paris, said that Pakistan does not deny sending terrorists to India.
Last week, the Jammu and Kashmir police killed a Pakistan militant identified as Khalid aka Zebran in Ganderbal. Police said Khalid was associated with LeT.
In 2018, security forces claimed to have gunned down more than 257 militants include local and foreign in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the home ministry, there were 328 attempts made last year by militants to enter Jammu and Kashmir from across the border, of which more than half were thwarted.
