Pak Continues To Push Terrorists, Arms Across LoC, Army Effectively Thwarting Attempts: Gen Naravane
Indian Army Chief Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane on Thursday said the Pak Army was trying to push as many terrorists and arms as possible before the onset of winters. But the Indian Army’s counter-terrorist grid has thwarted such bids effectively, he said.
Speaking to Aajtak and India Today TV, Gen Naravane said, “Pakistan is not letting up on its nefarious design of pushing as many terrorists as they can before the onset of winters. However, our counter-terrorist and counter-infiltration grid is dynamic and very effective as is evident from the number of terrorists that have been neutralised by the security forces and the infiltration attempts that have been foiled on the Line of Control.”
On October 14, a suspected BAT(Border Action Team) action bid was foiled in the Tangdhar sector by alert troops when three-four armed intruders were observed to be closing onto a forward post. Prompt action by alert troops averted the infiltration bid after which search and surveillance of the area were coordinated.
While the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is meeting later this month to deliberate on Pakistan’s compliance with international anti-terrorist financing norms, Pakistan continues to support terrorism by abetting the smuggling of weapons across the Line of Control.
