Srinagar (Jammu Kashmir): In the light of possible attempts by Pakistan-backed terrorist attacks, a high alert order has been sounded at all Indian Army, Air Force, and security forces’ bases in Jammu and Kashmir. This comes after sources in the Indian Army said Pakistan has upscaled ceasefire violations in terms of area and weapon in the last few days.
The official sources told news agencies that there are attempts from Pakistan to create disturbances in the valley. On Thursday, Northern Army Commander Lt Gen Ranbir Singh had said that Pakistan has been attempting to push in infiltrators in the past few days and that such attempts have been supported by ceasefire violations.
Earlier, at least three Pakistan Army soldiers were killed in the Indian security forces’ response to the unprovocative firing from across the border. Pakistan violated ceasefire in Uri and Rajouri sectors of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. The unprovocative firing from the Pakistani side began on the day India is celebrating its 73rd Independence Day.
The Indian Army befittingly retaliated to the ceasefire violation by the Pakistani troops.
