Terror activities swell across border as J&K polls approach


According to top intelligence sources, the terror threat in Jammu and Kashmir has not yet been averted, as more terrorists are in the process of infiltrating across the Line of Control (LoC) before the District Development Council (DDC) and panchayat by-elections. Security forces have been instructed to be more vigilant, especially on the LoC.

On Thursday, four Jaish-eMohammed (JeM) terrorists infiltrated the International Border area in the Samba sector and were on the way to Srinagar before being killed in an encounter near Nagrota in the Jammu area.

According to the intelligence report accessed by The Daily Guardian, Pakistani intelligence agency ISI, Pakistani Army and Pakistani Rangers across the border are still busy infiltrating a large number of terrorists on several launch pads. Sources say that there is a launch pad named “Masroor Bada Bhai” in front of the Kathua, Samba, RS Pura, Arnia and Abdulia sectors. Apart from this, the movement of terrorists has also been noticed around the launching pad present in Sukmal, Chaparral and Luni.

The sources also said that there are 18 such launch pads in front of Gurez, Machal, Tangdhar, Keran and Uri sectors from where attempts are being made to infiltrate the border. Other important launch pads include Kel Tejian, Sardari, Sonar, Losar, Sherkhan Top and Dudhaniyal Thamugam Jura, where terrorists are still being brought. There are 50 Jaish and Lashkar terrorists on the launch pad of Sonar, Losar and Sher Khan, right in front of the Gurez sector. According to sources, all these launch pads are very close to the international border.

The terrorists are trying to infiltrate this area so they can use the national highway, which is about 11 km from there, to escape. A large number of terrorists have also been brought to the Jura, Khoi and Chhejua launch pads located across the border. The terrorists are being kept in the security cordon of the Pakistani Army for security at the launch pads. Underground bunkers are also being built, so that the terrorists can be kept hidden without coming to anyone’s notice.

Elections are to be held in eight phases for the DDC and Panchayat by-elections in Jammu and Kashmir, from 28 November to 19 December. Intelligence sources have informed that Pakistan is unable to digest this election and, through its handlers, is instructing Hizbul terrorists in the Kashmir Valley to target leaders. The Pakistani Army has reportedly become so furious that it has breached the ceasefire 4,052 times till 15 November in 2020 itself.
