Nearly 500 terrorists are waiting along the Line of Control in Pak-occupied Kashmir in various training camps, looking for opportunities to enter Jammu and Kashmir, a top Army officer said.
“As far as militants operating within Jammu and Kashmir is concerned, 200 to 300 terrorists, who have come here, joined militants here. Like this, nearly 500 terrorists are staged in terrorists’ training camps in PoK and are ready to infiltrate into J&K,” said Northern Command chief Lt Gen Ranbir Singh.
“But Pakistan keep trying to do some mischief to disturb the peace here. Even today terror infrastructure is being run within Pakistan (by its forces and agencies). These include training as launching pad for terrorists to infiltrate into the country,” he added.
In a reply to a question over the issue of dropping arms through drones in Punjab by Pakistan, Lt General Singh said that deploying drones to arm terrorists is one of the new modus operandi of Pakistan.
The Army Commander further added that terrorists were facing a shortage of arms in Kashmir following which they were trying to snatch or loot weapons from SPOs and police stations.
“But I want to ensure you that Indian Army is capable and determined to foil Pakistan’s any unholy design. Their designs will not be allowed to succeed,” he said.
