Pakistan army has mobilised about 100 militants across the LoC to push them into India to carry out attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Pakistan army is believed to be planning attacks by militants on Indian defence personnel and security establishments besides select civilian targets in the wake of September 29 surgical strikes.

Meanwhile, an Indian TV channel today telecast a purported conversation in which one of its journalists posed as a senior Pakistani police official to the SP of Mirpur in Pakistan-administered-Kashmir in which the surgical strikes were discussed and deaths of 12 Pakistanis were mentioned. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is believed to have conveyed the assessment of Pakistan army readying 100 militants to cross over into India during a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, official sources said.

Quoting intelligence agencies, the NSA is said to have told the members of the CCS–Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj besides the Prime Minister–that about a dozen terror launch pads were activated by the Pakistan Army to push the militants to Jammu and Kashmir "to avenge the surgical strikes."

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who is also a member of the CCS, is away abroad.
