New Delhi: Defence Minister A K Antony on Saturday
said the armed forces were expecting "more attempts of
infiltration" during summer by terrorists from across the Line
of Control (LoC).
"During winter time also, there were serious attempts of
infiltration. This summer, we are expecting more attempts of
infiltration," he told reporters here.
