Bandipora, June 21, 2011
Denying reports of infiltration across the Line of Control (LoC), the Army on Tuesday claimed the bids were at a 20 year low, as no militant has been able to sneak into the Kashmir Valley so far this year. "I think I can count them as infiltration attempts, (there were) perhaps two (attempts)," General Officer Commanding of Srinagar based 15 Corps Syed Atta Hasnain told reporters in Bandipora, 80 km from Srinagar.

He said both the bids were unsuccessful and added that for the first time infiltration has come down to zero in the last 20 years.

Last year, more than 100 bids were reported along the LoC in which around 100 ultras were killed. He said recent reports of infiltration were not credible.

The commander was here for an 'Awami Mulakat' (Public Meet) with the newly elected local body representatives of the area.
