‘Infiltration attempts across LoC at 20-year low’

Last Updated: Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 21:50

Bandipora (Kashmir): Denying reports of
infiltration across the Line of Control (LoC), the Army on Tuesday
claimed the bids were at a 20-year low as no militant has been
able to sneak into the Kashmir Valley so far this year.

"I think I can count them as infiltration attempts,
(there were) perhaps two (attempts)," General Officer
Commanding of Srinagar-based 15 Corps Syed Atta Hasnain told
reporters here, 80 km from Srinagar.

He said both the bids were unsuccessful and added that
for the first time infiltration has come down to zero in last
20 years.

Last year, more than 100 bids were reported along the
LoC in which around 100 ultras were killed.

He said recent reports of infiltration were not
credible.

The commander was here for an `Awami Mulakat` (Public
Meet) with the newly elected local body representatives of the
area.
