New Delhi: With intelligence agencies warning terrorist attacks on military installations in Jammu and Kashmir, Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor on Tuesday said security forces are "capable and confident" of taking on such threats.
"Any infiltration or militants trying to target security
forces, I think we are very capable and confident of taking on
any such attacks," Kapoor said when asked about warnings of
terror attacks on army installations in Jammu and Kashmir.

On reports of change of tactics by militants in carrying
out attacks on military targets, he said, "We are aware of
change in tactics but we have also refined our procedures to
