Srinagar. After the statement made by the Indian Army on Monday regarding terrorism and ceasefire in the Kashmir Valley, now once again an attempt has been made to infiltrate through Pakistan. On Thursday, three terrorists were killed while thwarting an infiltration attempt along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir. A huge cache of arms and ammunition has been recovered from the terrorists. GOC (General Officer Commanding)-15 Corps, Lt Gen DP Pandey, while giving information about this entire development, said, “A lot of terrorist activities are being reported across the border. Many launching pads have been reactivated on the other side of the border which would not have been possible without the connivance of the Pakistan Army.
Speaking to the media, Lt Gen DP Pandey said that three terrorists were killed in an encounter along the Line of Control during an infiltration attempt in North Kashmir’s Uri sector on Thursday morning. He told that he has received information that the three terrorists were part of a five-member heavily armed group. Our soldiers posted along the LoC saw three infiltrators crossing the border. During this there were two more intruders who were a little behind. Everyone was issued a warning to go back. Despite this, the infiltrators did not stop and three terrorists were killed in the firing. Five rifles, seven pistols, 24 UBGL grenades, 38 Chinese grenades and seven Pakistani grenades have been recovered from the terrorists.
This is the second infiltration attempt in Uri sector this week. Let us inform that an operation was started on Sunday after a group of six terrorists entered. But it was closed three days after the terrorists were not traced. After the encounter, IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar said, it is not possible that continuous infiltration attempts could be made without the connivance of local Pak Army commanders.
Speaking to the media on Monday, Lt Gen DP Pandey had said that there has been no incident of ceasefire violation since the agreement this year. Along with this, he told that about 70 foreign terrorists are still present in the valley. So far more than 100 terrorists have been killed in the operation being conducted against the terrorists in the valley.
