The Indian Army has released a new video which shows an infiltration attempt by Pakistan. In the video, Indian Army can be seen foiling the BAT (Border Action Team) action by Pakistan, as on September 12 and 13, 2019. The video also shows Indian troops launching grenades at Pakistan's SSG (Special Service Group) commandos/terrorists using Under Barrel Grenade Launchers.
Earlier this month, the Army had killed two soldiers near the Hajipir sector. The dead bodies were retrieved by Pakistani troops after raising a white flag.
"In the same area, Pakistan attempted infiltration on the night of 11 and 12 September and again on 12 and 13 September. The attempt could have been BAT action as well.
"The area reportedly has Pakistani Special Services Group troops. These intruders were well-engaged resulting in one more Pakistani casualty on 12 and 13 September," said an army official.
The bid was foiled by the Indian troops by launching grenades.
A BAT intrusion had been foiled by India in the Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir in the last week of July. The dead bodies of the five BAT commandoes lying near a forward post along the LoC are yet to be claimed by Pakistan.
Jaishankar’s comments at a media interaction are the latest in a string of similar statements that suggest that the “status” of Jammu & Kashmir is now off the table in any discussion with Pakistan and what seemed to be political rhetoric is settling into a newer and more distinct diplomatic stance.
“Our position on PoK is, has always been and will always be very clear. PoK is part of India and we expect one day to have physical jurisdiction over it,” Jaishankar said.
Earlier, Union home minister Amit Shah reiterated the position while speaking in Lok Sabha.
