New Delhi, Oct 2: Infiltrations at the LoC continue even after the Nawaz Sharif Government and the Indian government took a pledge to fight terrorism yet again. In a recent development late yesterday night, Pakistani armymen-a batallion of 30-40-have been seen within the cordoned area of the LoC in India.

They are reported to have taken over the Shala Bhata village in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir. There were small-scale firings between the Indian and the Pakistani army that are still said to be continuing.
