New Delhi, Mar 30 (ANI): Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor said on Tuesday that militants become successful in infiltrating into the Indian side of the Line of Control because of their continued attempts.

General Kapoor made the statement after handing over the baton of Chairman's office in Chiefs of Staff Committee (COC) to Air Chief Marshal P.V. Naik here.

"This is a matter of understanding that if infiltrators continue to make their attempts to enter the Indian side, as they are being supported by their organisations, they will become successful at some point of time. But whenever they tried to infiltrate, we detected them," he said.

"Almost eight militants got killed during the encounters by our deployed troops. The rest of the militants fled towards the other side of Line of Control. So this is a good job done by our security forces. The militants would continue with their infiltration attempts. We would be able to take actions only if they would come towards us," he added.

Eight militants of the Laskhar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen were killed during an encounter on March 23 in Kern sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district. (ANI)
