Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, Chinar Corps Commander Lieutenant General KJS Dhillon said all the launch pads are now full and infiltration attempts are being made every day. He added that intrusive efforts are being made round the clock with the help of the Pakistani Army.

Lt Gen Dhillon also confirmed that there were infiltration attempts in Poonch and Rajouri area. The Army added that it had arrested two Pakistani terrorists associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) on August 21 from Jammu and Kashmir. It further released the confession video of the terrorists. 

In a massive breakthrough in the fight against terror, Indian security agencies arrested two terrorists, Khalil Ahmad and Nazim Khokar. They had said that terrorists have been sent to LeT camps in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) where they have been receiving training on how to use weapons. Subsequently, Pakistan recruited a group of seven LeT terrorists and sent them to Kashmir. Ahmad and Khokar were part of this group which also had three Afghan nationals. It has been revealed that they were told to target Indian forces.

The desperation of Pakistan to malign India reached the zenith after Centre abrogated Article 370 of Jammu and Kashmir, removing the special status to the erstwhile state. 

"Intrusive efforts are being made day and night with the help of the Pakistani Army. There were also infiltration attempts in Poonch, Rajouri. The Army has also given a befitting reply to these attempts. We have also informed the DGMO Pakistan about the captured terrorists," said the Army.

Speaking at the same press briefing, Jammu and Kashmir Additional Director-General of Police (ADGP) law and order, Munir Khan, said that since August 5 there have not been any incident of civilian casualty. He affirmed that the law and order situation is better, adding that normalcy is returning back to the erstwhile state.

On a positive note, the Army clarified that the situation in Gulmarg is peaceful and asked the people to visit the town to judge the situation themselves.
