New Delhi, Sept 22: The Indian army is going all out to not just flush out militants but to prevent all infiltrations along the border. On the intervening night of September 21 and 22 three days after the Uri attack, the Indian army managed to foil a major infiltration bid at the Naugam sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
Terrorists in two groups had tried to sneak at the Naugam sector, but the army managed to foil both the bids. Both the groups were forced to get back to Pakistan due to this operation by the Indian army.
The army is planning its operations in two stages. While one is to flush out militants who have infiltrated in large numbers into the Valley, the other is to prevent every infiltration bid that is made by the Pakistan terrorists.
In the past couple of days there have been a number of encounters launched by the Indian army.
In a very successful encounter three days back, the Indian army had managed to kill 10 out of the 15 terrorists who had infiltrated near the Uri sector.
Intelligence Bureau officials have warned that the number of infiltrations have shot up two fold due to the unrest in Jammu and Kashmir. The first priority should be to flush out the militants from the Valley and also give equal importance to stopping all infiltration bids.
Both the army and the IB are coordinating with each other in locating, identifying and killing the militants who have infiltrated. Moreover there is a high alert along the border to ensure that no one single infiltration is successful.
The army is focusing on several points of infiltration. A lot of the militancy has been found in the South of Kashmir and the entire focus is on these areas.
