New Delhi: The Army has pressed into operation para commandos from Special Forces in Keran sector to flush out a large number of Pakistani intruders which include terrorists and some Pak army regulars, sources said today.
There are presently about 300 terrorists holed up inside the dense hilly forests of Shala Bata, and the Army has thrown a cordon near the Line of Control to flush them out.
The skirmish near Line of Control was in full swing when Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh was holding talks with Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif in New York, as the massive infiltration took place on the night of September 23.
Army sources in Srinagar are tightlipped about the entire operation in Keran sector.
Additional troops, helicopters and spy drones have been pressed into action by the Army to flush out the intruders. So far 15 intruders have been killed, but their bodies are yet to be located.
