Infiltration reports concocted: Gen Hasnain
Karnah, May 23: General Officer Commanding 15 Corps, Lt General Syed Atta Hasnain, Monday rebutted the media reports about infiltration in the past few days.
“There was no incident of infiltration and neither there was any gunfight on Line of Control. These reports are concocted and baseless. This kind of baseless stuff appears in media in May and June every year,” Hasnain told Greater Kashmir on the sidelines of a function here.
The GOC, however, said that 700 militants trained in 42 camps on the other side of LoC were waiting to infiltrate. “But our alert troops will foil their any attempt to sneak in,” he added. Hasnain said there was no tension between the forces of India and Pakistan in the wake of the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
“Situation is returning to normal in the Valley. In Sopore, situation was bad earlier but it has improved now,” he said in reply to a question.
Hailing people of Karnah for participating in Panchayat elections, the GOC said that people of the region are peace loving and always supported the country.
