Amid multiple attempts by the Pakistani Army to infiltrate along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane on Thursday asserted that the Indian soldiers were thwarting all efforts with “counter-terrorist” mechanisms to fight the neighbour’s “nefarious design”. Pakistan is not letting up on its nefarious design of pushing as many terrorists as they can before the onset of winters.
Army chief general said that their counter-terrorist and counter-infiltration grid is dynamic and very effective as is evident from the number of terrorists that have been neutralised by the security forces and the infiltration attempts that have been foiled on the Line of Control. In the last three weeks from September 24 to October 15, a total of 17 terrorists have been eliminated by security forces which include three foreign terrorists including Pakistani nationals.On the morning of October 14, a suspected BAT(Border Action Team) action bid was foiled in the Tangdhar sector by alert troops when 3-4 armed intruders were observed to be closing onto a forward post. Prompt action by alert troops averted the infiltration bid after which search and surveillance of the area was coordinated.
