New Delhi: In addition to the much visible anti-India media campaign launched by Pakistan, it has been reliably learnt by the Indian Armed Forces and Intelligence agencies that Pakistan ISI has been instructed to execute a plan to flood Jammu and Kashmir with weapons. Due to the strong anti-infiltration grid established by the Indian security forces, Pakistan is unable to infiltrate neither terrorists nor weapons into the valley to increase violence levels in the valley. Pakistan ISI has been given an ultimatum to push in maximum infiltrators along with weapons into Kashmir before onset of winters, when the undergrowth/bushes in most infiltration prone areas will die down due to dew & snowfall.
ISI has reportedly analysed the Rules of Engagement (ROE) followed by Indian Security forces that they do not fire when an intruder along the Line of Control is seen without a weapon. Therefore, this modus operandi to infiltrate terrorists without weapon and sending weapons separately by drones or other means has been instituted to reduce the risk of terrorists getting eliminated at the Line of Control itself.Pakistan ISI has reportedly procured a sizeable number of Hexacopters from a Chinese firm associated with the CPEC in the pretext of protecting CPEC assets.
Recently, Indian Security Forces have also made multiple recoveries of EMEI Type 97 NSR rifles manufactured by ‘NORINCO’ company of China, which is a standard issue to PLA soldiers and also gifted to Pakistan Frontier Force as part of CPEC cooperation.
