As officials get down to probing the Uri attack, there are various aspects that will be considered. The mole that the Jaish-e-Mohammad had in Kashmir who gave out crucial information is one major aspect of the probe. The breach at the border as a result of which terrorists managed access is also another part of the probe.
While at first, the Intelligence Bureau were weighing in the possibility of the attack being staged by the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the focus later shifted to the Jaish after a call was received by a Kashmir journalist. The journalist was told by the Jaish operative that they were behind the attack.
Intelligence Bureau officials say that the four terrorists had entered into Indian territory late on Saturday night. In Uri, terrorists tend not to linger on for too long as the public which 100 per cent behind the army report such incidents immediately.
The army too has a huge task ahead as the number of infiltrations have gone up. Most of the security forces are positioned in the heart of Kashmir and are dealing with the protestors. The focus of the security forces has been on the unrest that broke out on July 9, a day after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
This scenario led to the number of infiltrations go up. Officials suspect that there are at least 120 to 130 terrorists, who may have infiltrated since the unrest began.
Officials feel the need to find an urgent solution to the unrest so that the entire focus would be on guarding the border and preventing the infiltrations.
