Intrusion By Pak's Border Action Team Stopped In Jammu And Kashmir

Hizbul Mujahideen commander Abdul Qayoom Najar was killed on Tuesday as Army foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control

An attack on army post by armed intruders suspected to be from Pakistan army's Border Action Team (BAT) has been reportedly repelled in Kupwara district of north Kashmir near Line of Control.

The security forces have also recovered a weapon, report said.

AFTER the BSF launched Operation Arjun following intermittent firing and ceasefire violations from across the border in Jammu region, Pakistani forces spoke to the Indian side and sought peace along the border, BSF Director General K K Sharma said here on Wednesday.

Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat this week claimed India had carried out a surgical strike in Pakistan-administered Kashmir and that India has options available to conduct such a strike again. "It is nothing but an attempt to push in as many terrorists as possible befor the winter sets in", said an official.

On June 22, the Indian troops had repulsed a similar attack by the members of Pakistan's BAT who had allegedly intruded 600 metres deep inside the Indian territory after breaching the LoC in Poonch district.

There is need to "change the discourse" around Jammu and Kashmir as there is no such thing as the Kashmir issue, Union Minister Jitendra Singh has said, stressing that the only "point of debate" is retrieving Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

On May 1, two Indian soldiers were beheaded by the Pakistan Army's BAT in a different sector of the LoC.

The injured have been identified as 55-year-old Sham Akhtar and 28-year-old Raza Ahmed.
