Dras, July 24: The above picture is that area where the Pakistani militants gained their entry point to Kargil. The narrow path amid the valleys was previously used for locals, but who knew that this inaccessible spot could be used for infiltration too.

This road, which is close to the Suruhu rivulet formed by melting snow in the higher altitude, reaches the Batalik sector. The Indian Army was unaware that even this area could be used as an infiltration point, hence there was just one Bunker here. The militants took this advantage and posed as local villagers transporting commodities used for daily use.

This way, they built the Tiger Hill, Tololing, Jubar, Batalik and Mushkoh bunkers and base camps under the army's nose. The bunkers have been destroyed now.

However, the situation is different now with stricter vigilence there and multiple check points that intervene any passage from there.
