The Indian Army has averted a major strike plan by Pakistan troops in Jammu Kashmir’s Naugam Sector. Army sources revealed today that yesterday they  foiled a major BAT (Border Action Team) attempt to strike a forward post along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Naugam Sector.

The security forces said that intruders attempted to move by exploiting thick jungles close to LoC and were assisted by heavy covering fire of high calibre weapons from Pakistani posts. Intruders were wearing combat dresses like Pakistani regulars and were carrying stores with Pakistani markings.

Some were also seen in BSF and old pattern IA dresses. From the recovery, it was estimated that they intended to carry out a gruesome attack on the Indian Army. The Army also said that they will ask Pakistan to take back the mortal remains of deceased likely Pakistani soldiers since Pakistan did provide full covering fire support to these intruders.

Meanwhile, following a low-intensity blast at main bus stand, Srinagar and a brief exchange of fire outside an army camp here with suspected militants, state police chief Dilbag Singh said adequate security arrangements are in place across the Jammu region and there is no need to panic.
