Pakistan planning big operation: Keeps 100s of terrorists waiting at border
New Delhi, Jan 24: While several alerts have been issued ahead of Republic Day, the Border Security Force has said that nearly 100 terrorists were present at the launch pads along the India-Pakistan border and are waiting to be launched.
While the situation is under control, the Inspector General of the Border Security Force, Kashmir, Raja Babu Singh said in Srinagar, that there are reports that there are 104 to 135 present at the launch pads waiting to infiltrate.
He also added that a heightened vigil is being maintained after a few local guides crossed the Line of Control. We are maintaining a vigil on them and their families, he also added.
There has been a lot of activity in the border areas. An Intelligence Bureau official tells OneIndia that with the number of terrorists in the Valley dropping, Pakistan is on a mission to get more of them to infiltrate and keep Jammu and Kashmir on the boil.
Following the agreement on the cease fire between India and Pakistan, the situation has by and large remained normal.

The BSF troops also seized about 10.93 kg of narcotics from Akhnoor along with fake Indian currency with a face value of Rs 2,75,000, they said.
