New Delhi: Security forces have intensified vigil along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir after reports that two batches of militants would try to infiltrate next week.

Acting on intelligence report, the government has directed the security forces to be on high alert as a batch of seven militants belonging to Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad would try to cross the LoC next week.

The terrorists have moved forward from Kel sector to Doga area, sources said quoting the report.

Another report suggested that a group of six LeT militants, along with a local guide, are also trying to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir through Thandapani/Kainthwali.

"All formations of the security forces were told about the information and they were asked to intensify vigil," sources said.

Sources said that they were expecting firing from across the border towards Indian posts as this happens whenever there is an attempt of infiltration.

On July 13, Army foiled an infiltration bid and killed a militant along the LoC in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Last week, one Indian woman was killed and nearly 10 others were injured when Pakistani forces fired upon in Akhnoor sector of Jammu, leading to strong protests by India.
