Pakistan continues backing terrorists infiltration into Kashmir

Srinagar: Pakistan continues to help infiltration of terrorists into the Kashmir Valley though the Ramazan ceasefire has brought a modicum of peace into the lives of ordinary Kashmiris, a senior Army commander said on Tuesday.

We are happy that no civilian casualty has taken place during the holy month of Ramazan

Lt General AK Bhatt, Commander of the Srinagar headquartered 15 Corps, said on the sidelines of a function: “The Ramazan ceasefire has brought in some modicum of peace into the lives of the common Kashmiris who have appreciated the gesture.

“We are happy that no civilian casualty has taken place during the holy month of Ramazan, but Pakistan has been continuing its efforts to help infiltration of terrorists into the state,” he said.

Lt Gen Bhatt was here to inaugurate free residential coaching for aspirants of NEET medical entrance test.

He said that troops on the Line of Control (LoC), which divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan, were deployed to meet the challenge of infiltration.

But the officer said that there were no indications suggesting that infiltration attempts would increase in the coming months.

Lt Gen Bhatt said the decision to extend or call off the Ramazan ceasefire was for the government to take.

“In both cases, the Army will continue to enforce the decision taken by the government,” he said.
