Around 160 Terrorists Waiting To Infiltrate into Kashmir via New Routes: Indian Army

Published

on

Around 160 Pakistan sponsored terrorists are waiting across the Line of Control to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir, according to Lieutenant General Paramjit Singh.

Lieutenant General Singh, who took over as the general officer commanding of the Nagrota-based White Knight Corps also said that cross-border terrorism will stop only if Pakistan changes its policy and intentions.

Lt. Gen. Singh, who has served in all three regions of Jammu and Kashmir, said, “140 to 160 terrorists at different locations in Pakistan are being pushed into the state.”

“The terror infrastructure is intact, and Pakistan’s intentions have not changed. The Pakistan Army and the ISI’s complicity in planning infiltration and terror attacks is evident and it continues,” the officer, who has a vast experience in high-altitude warfare, said.

Talking about challenges during winter, Lt Gen Singh, who is part of the elite Parachute Regiment (Special Forces), said the Army anticipates that Pakistani troops will make an attempt to push infiltrators through heavy snow-bound areas and non-traditional routes.

“We have all contingency plans ready. We have coordinated with all security agencies, and plans are being implemented smoothly,” said Lt Gen Singh, who commanded a special forces’ battalion that participated in the surgical strikes after the attack on an Army brigade in Uri in 2016.

Referring to the recent incident of the firing of 107-mm rocket on the Poonch brigade, he said, “Despite Director General of Military Operations-level talks in May during which the two countries agreed to abide by the 2003 ceasefire agreement, Pakistani troops targeted these locations.”

“In response, we conveyed that Pakistan must exercise caution before indulging in any misadventure,” Lt Gen Singh said.

Replying to another question about causalities suffered by Pakistani troops in retaliatory fire by the Indian Army, the officer said, “Pakistan has never been open about its causalities unless the soldier is from Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir”.

As Major General Staff at the Northern Command headquarters, Lt. Gen. Singh played a pivotal role in strategising the military response to agitations that erupted in 2016 after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
