High alert sounded along Indo-Pak border
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Jammu, Jan 10: Troops along the Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Kashmir have been put on high alert after reports of an increase in infiltration attempts into the state.
“There are intelligence reports of further increase in the cross-border infiltration attempts from PaK. Troops have been put on high alert along the Indo-Pak border and have intensified round-the-clock patrolling,” security officials said.
According to intelligence received, 1,000 to 1,200 militants were staged along the border in launching pads to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir from PaK, they said.
In view of the foggy conditions, troops have been setting up more ambushes and intensified patrolling round the clock, they said.
“Militants try to take benefit of the thick fog to cut the fence and infiltrate as there is no visibility even at very close range during the night,” a source said.
Police have also activated Border Village Defence Committees as another tier of security and are keeping a close watch inside the border belts.
