The Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday warned of increase in infiltration bids by militants into Kashmir valley this summer to create disturbance.

BSF inspector general Baljit Singh disclosed in Srinagar, "Militants were desperate to sneak into the Valley but security personnel were ready to foil any attempt of infiltration by militants."

Singh said the security forces foiled attempts by militants to infiltrate into the Valley last month.

The IG said militants intend to create disturbance in Kashmir valley. He predicted a hot summer this year.

"With the onset of summer, which has led to melting of snow in higher reaches, the militants have started their attempts to infiltrate into Indian border," said Singh.

He, however, was quick to add that the BSF and the army were ready to face any challenge.

"The security forces are maintaining a tight vigil on the border. Patrolling is being carried out round the clock to ensure that the militants do not succeed in infiltrating into the valley," said Singh.
