An Intelligence Bureau reports suggests that terrorists in Pakistan have undergone a 22-day training course and are set to infiltrate into India. Pakistan which normally cuts down infiltrations during the winter, has decided to step up the heat instead.
The IB reports suggest that a 22-day training programme was undertaken across the Line of Control in November, during which special training on how to carry out attacks during the winter was imparted to a batch 30 terrorists.
The Pakistan army has handed out high-altitude gear to the terrorists that it uses in Siachin. During a recent meeting between the Pakistan Army officials and terrorists, it was decided that infiltrations should continue even when the snowfall is high, and so, high-altitude gear was provided to them (the terrorists).
No breather for security forces
Infiltrations normally slow down due to heavy snow fall in December. However, the Pakistan Army wants to ensure that the process continues and the Indian forces do not get time to settle down.
IB officials tell OneIndia that based on the information, there was a meeting that was held two weeks ago at Muridke in Punjab, Pakistan, in which officials of the Pak army and terrorists of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba were present.
IB officials report that this is a clear sign that the Pakistan Army does not want the issue to die down.
"In normal circumstances, during the winter, security forces get a bit of a breather as infiltrations are down. However this time around security forces will have to prepare for a long winter as terrorists will look to beat the snow and infiltrate," says the source.
