On the night of September 18/19, suspicious movement was spotted along the Line of Control, according to Defence spokeswoman Col Emron Masavi. “A search of the region is underway,” he stated.
Infiltration efforts over the Line of Control in North Kashmir have decreased significantly this year, particularly in the Uri, Nowgam, Tanghdar, Keran, Machil, and Gurez sectors. Officials from the army’s 19 and 27 infantry divisions, which are responsible for keeping a watch on the LoC from Uri to Gurez, agree that the number of infiltration attempts has decreased.
“We can’t let our guard down because we never know when things may get tense. Our soldiers are always on the lookout. The tight vigilance along the Line of Control has deterred infiltration attempts, according to a senior army official in north Kashmir.
According to officials, the months of September and October are critical for infiltration efforts since routes and hills commonly utilized for infiltration close owing to heavy snowfall. Official sources, on the other hand, claim that many infiltration attempts into Kashmir have been made in recent months from diverse areas.
