Srinagar: BSF on Tuesday said militants in
Pakistan occupied Kashmir are desperate to infiltrate into the
Valley but the security force manning the border is ready to
combat the challenge.

"We have reports that militants are desperate for
infiltration for creating disturbance in Kashmir," IG BSF
Baljit Singh told reporters at a function here.

With the onset of summer, which has resulted in melting
of snow in higher reaches, the militants have started their
attempts to sneak in.

Singh said security agencies including BSF and Army are
ready to face the challenge and will ensure that the ultras
do not succeed in their efforts.

"The Army and BSF are patrolling the border to ensure
that the militants do not succeed in infiltrating into the
Valley," he said.

"Last month also we had foiled attempts by militants to
infiltrate into the Valley," he added.
