Along the Line of Control in the Uri area of Baramulla in northern Kashmir on Wednesday, two people who tried to get in were killed.
“Security forces stopped an attempt to sneak in along the LoC in the Uri sector.” Two attackers were stopped by alert security staff. Found evidence-gathering items, weapons, and ammo. “There are large-scale searches going on,” the Jammu and Kashmir police said.
Even though India and Pakistan have had a new ceasefire deal along the Line of Control and border since February 2021, the army and BSF say that there have been several attempts to sneak in and violations of the ceasefire from across the LoC and border.
Earlier this month, R.R. Swain, director general of the J&K police, and Sujoy Lal Thaosen, director general of the CRPF, co-led a high-level meeting to talk about how to make security better for the winter. Swain emphasized building up and improving skills and told them to start operations in higher elevations to find and catch militants from both inside and outside of Afghanistan.
The military has killed at least 60 terrorists in J&K, 40 of whom were from outside the country.
