At least one terrorist has been neutralised by the security forces after an infiltration bid was foiled in Jammu and Kashmir’s Zorawar area. The security forces have recovered one weapon from the terrorist which is yet to identified. The security operation is still underway.
The affected area has been cordoned-off and hunt for other terrorists if present is on. Meanwhile, a security alert has been sounded in the area and concerned authorities are monitoring the situation.
Earlier on September 20, another infiltration bid was foiled by the security forces killing two Pakistani infiltrators across the International Boundary in Ajnala sector near Amritsar, Punjab. Pakistani currency, 4 kg of heroine, phones and arms were also recovered from Pakistani intruders.
Prior to that, on September 16, two terrorists were gunned down after an infiltration bid that was foiled in Machil sector of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K)’s Kupwara district.
While Pakistan continues to support terror, Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat on Monday once again reiterated that India may conduct more surgical strikes if necessary.
“Strong military action against Pakistan will be taken if necessary just like the surgical strikes that were carried out last year,” Army chief said.
On September 25, while speaking at the book launch of ‘India’s Most Fearless’ based on the surgical strikes conducted along the Myanmar border and the Line of Control, Bipin Rawat said, “Strikes were a message we wanted to communicate. Think they understood what we mean. These things could follow if required.”
Speaking on infiltration from across the border, the Army Chief said that terrorists will continue to come and Indian soldiers are ready to ‘welcome’ them.
“We are prepared for any infiltration. Terrorists are ready at that side of the border and we are ready on this side to welcome them. We will receive them and send them to their graves,” Rawat said.
