As tension continues at the India-Pakistan border after the Army’s surgical strikes in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today chaired the meet of Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) here to review the situation along border areas.
At the meeting, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval shared the report prepared by agencies on the September 28 operations across the Line of Control. Doval had earlier shared the same report containing details of the attack with the PM and Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Crucially, the report provides information related to the movement and deployment of Pakistani troops and militants along the border areas.
However, what should send alarm bells ringing for security establishment sin India is this fresh input from the NSA.
According to Doval, at least 12 terror launch pads have sprung up within PoK following India’s strikes and that militants in large numbers are planning to infiltrate into Indian side. The NSA further informed the CCS that Pakistan’s infantry division is guarding all these terror launch pads.
Doval, at the CCS meet, informed that at least 40-50 jawans of Pakistan Army’s infantry division are guarding each of these installations.
Situation has been tense at India-Pakistan border since the September 18 attack at an Army camp in Uri town of Jammu and Kashmir which left 19 soldiers dead. India blamed Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammad militant group for the attack.
The relations between the two neighbouring nations further deteriorated after the Indian Army on September 28 night carried out surgical strikes to destroy terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
