Infiltration up: Army Chief
‘40 Militants Killed In Past 2 Months’
New Delhi, Oct 11: Infiltration bids from across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir have increased during the last two months with around 25 such incidents being witnessed in which nearly 40 militants were killed during the period, Army Chief General V K Singh said on Monday.
“As far as infiltration is concerned, we have controlled it to a large extent. In the last two months, there have been many attempts to infiltrate and we have achieved a lot of success also in this regard,” Gen Singh told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
He, however, did not give the figures preceding August.
Talking about the last two months, he said, “we have had approximately 20-25 attempts and the total number of militants killed during this period has been about 35-40.”
Gen Singh said the incursion of militants “has been controlled to a large extent”.
“There have been many attempts to infiltrate and we have achieved a lot of success also in this regard,” he said.
Asked about reports suggesting that Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, has visited LoC, Gen Singh said, “Salahuddin is on the other side. We are not worried with whom he goes around. If he tries to infiltrate, he would also be dealt with in the same way his accomplices are.”
Queried about the attacks by Chinese hackers on Indian networks, the Army Chief said, “The whole world is worried about cyber security. Our other government websites have also been attacked and technology is such a field in which both defensive and offensive means are applied.”
“We are trying to take measures which can ensure that our networks are not in danger,” he added.
