30 terrorists have been kept on standby at the Indo-Pak border, an Intelligence Bureau report states.
The IB report that this core team of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Hizbul Mujahideen have been kept on standby and are awaiting instructions to infiltrate into the Valley. The IB says that this is the final push before the winter sets in.
The latest intelligence report suggests that the 30 member team would infiltrate in batches. The ISI wants the process to be completed by November. The ISI has instructed these terrorists to infiltrate into the Valley, but not carry out any attack immediately.
Once they infiltrate, they have been instructed to get into their hideouts and then wait for orders. The 30 member team would be used in batches to strike at regular intervals during the winter, the IB report also said.
Army sources however said that the vigil along the border is tight. We will not let any infiltration take place, the officer added. We are aware that they will try and step up infiltrations before the winter sets in, but we will not let their plans succeed the officer also added.
