Antony rules out troop cut in Jammu & Kashmir

Just a day after the second meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and PDP leader Mufti Mohammed Sayeed on the J&K troops withdrawal issue, Defence Minister A K Antony on Sunday ruled out any cut-back in force levels in the militancy-hit state at the present juncture. The Defence Minister said the threat is still there and terrorist camps are still being run across the Line of Control. Antony said though the infiltration levels from across the LoC had stabilised, terrorists were now looking at infiltration from sea lanes and from routes in Bangladesh and Nepal to sneak into India.
