The Indian Army on Monday asserted that the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir is “under control”. However, it said Pakistan was continuing with its anti-India activities along the Line of Control (LoC) while trying to infiltrate terrorists into the state.
The terror infrastructure across the border was intact, it added.
Talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a function in Udhampur, General Officer Commanding in Chief (GoC-in-C), Northern Command, Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said that 86 terrorists were killed this year in Jammu and Kashmir state and vowed that operations against the terrorists will continue.
He said while security forces killed a number of terrorists in the past about four months in the state, some terrorists shunned the path of violence and returned to the mainstream. He also said the Army was able to check and arrest terror activities in South of Pir Panjal in the Jammu region.
