“We have a determined enemy, who wants to make the situation worst, but we are even more determined to stop them in their attempts,” BSF inspector general Vikas Chandra said on Monday, lauding the Indian security forces’ response to the attack on an army camp in Baramulla.
Compass and wire-cutters were seized from the site of firing from the militants, which, Chandra said, indicated their intention to enter the campus that was foiled by our forces.
Inspector General BSF, Punjab Frontier, Anil Paliwal earlier on Monday said that an alert has been sounded on the border in the wake of the Baramulla attack and the following ceasefire violation in Poonch, assuring that the situation is under control.
Meanwhile, national security adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the current situation at the Line of Control (LoC).
On Monday, Pakistan violated ceasefire in Shahpur along the LoC in Poonch region of the Valley, during which heavy mortar shelling and firing was reported from the Pakistani side.
Earlier, Pakistan targeted Indian posts along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor tehsil late on Sunday evening.
Pakistan has stepped up cross-border firing after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
