On Sunday, the army initiated a search operation along the Line of Control (LoC) after noticing some dubious movement in North Kashmir’s Uri. As per reports, the army isn’t sure if the infiltrators have sneaked into Uri or returned to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Col Emron Masavi, the Defence spokesperson affirmed that suspicious movement was detected along the LoC on the intervening night of September 18/19. He added that the search of the area is in progress.

This year has witnessed a significant decline in infiltration attempts on the LoC in North Kashmir, especially from Uri, Nowgam, Tangdhar, Keran, Machil and Gurez sectors. Officials at the army’s 19 infantry and 27 infantry divisions who are responsible for monitoring the LoC from Uri to Gurez, accepted the decreased infiltration attempts from across the LoC.

A senior army official in North Kashmir cited, “The Guard can’t be lowered as we don’t know when things can turn volatile. Our men are on constant vigil. It’s a strict vigil on the LoC which has prevented infiltration attempts.”

Officials further informed that September and October months are always crucial vis-a-vis infiltration attempts as passes and ridges that are usually used for the infiltration are kept close due to heavy snowfall.

Meanwhile, sources in close association with the officials voiced that multiple infiltration attempts were made into Kashmir from various sectors.
