Jammu, Oct 23: With the speculation that presence of militants along LoC has increased, 3 militants were killed on Friday, Oct 22 in Jammu and Kashmir in the operation.
"The infiltration attempts would increase before the on-set of winter in J&K. The concentration of armed militants along the Line of Control on that side has increased to 500 to 600 now," top Army sources said.
Latest intercepts and border monitoring reports point towards large-scale attempts of infiltration by militants from several places before winter period, they said.
Sources say attempts are being made on a daily basis to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir, but tight security and alertness of the forces along the border have been foiling the militants' designs.
