The Army is carrying a search operation along the LoC's Uri sector in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district after detecting some "suspicious movement", officials said on Sunday.
"On the intervening night of 18/19 Sep 2021, suspicious movement was detected along the LoC in Uri Sector. Search of the area is under progress," an army official said.
However, no contact has been established so far, and the army isn’t certain whether infiltrators have sneaked into Uri or returned to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, reports Hindustan Times.
At the same time officials in the valley have stated that there has been significant drop in infiltration attempts on the LoC in North Kashmir this year especially from Uri, Nowgam, Tanghdar, Keran, Machil and Gurez sectors.
“The guard can’t be lowered as we don’t know when things can turn volatile. Our men are on constant vigil. It’s the strict vigil on the LoC which has prevented infiltration attempts,” said a senior army officer in north Kashmir.
Notably, a Pakistani national was among the two terrorists killed at the LoC in Poonch after an infiltration bid was foiled by the army on August 30.
