At least 600-800 militants waiting to infiltrate: Army

The three-pronged strategy has helped Army in keeping infiltrators at bay.



New Delhi: There is no let-up on Pakistan`s part to send terrorists from across the border and 600-800 militants were waiting to infiltrate, a top Army officer has said.

Northern Army Commander Lt General BS Jaswal, however, said the Army has succeeded in keeping the infiltrators at bay by adopting a three-pronged strategy.

"There is no let-up on the part of Pakistan in trying to send across terrorists. But if you see the statistics this year, they have not been able to make any inroads," he told
a TV channel.

The top commander said 600-800 militants were waiting to infiltrate from across the border.

He said according to the statistics, 70 militants had infiltrated by this time last year while this year, only 12 could infiltrate as per the assessment.

Explaining the Army`s strategy to prevent infiltration, Jaswal said, "First strategy is to ensure no one comes in. Second is the intelligence base and the third is the defence
line and the anti-infiltration position".
