Forces vigilant in JK: PC
New Delhi, May 23: The Centre Monday said the security forces were keeping a “very, very careful” vigil along the border in Jammu and Kashmir “to foil any infiltration attempt by militants.”
Home Minister P Chidambaram said there were some intelligence inputs suggesting infiltration to Jammu and Kashmir from across the border but the number was “debatable”.
“As you know, snow melts when summer begins. That is the season when infiltration begins. So, we are keeping a very, very careful vigil on the border,” he said at a press conference when asked about infiltration of militants into the border state.
Chidambaram said the security forces would be able to stop infiltration and if a few were able to get through, the forces would be able to apprehend them in course of time.
“I can’t vouch for any number but I would tend to believe that there is attempt to infiltrate to India,” he said.
