After Keran, Indian army foils three more infiltration bids by Pakistan’s BAT
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: A day after the Indian army foiled the infiltration bid by Pakistan’s Border Action Team (BAT) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Keran sector, similar terror bids by Pakistan was foiled in Gurez, Machil and Tangdhar.
In the past week, the Pakistan army and terrorists have made four infiltration bids.
Border Action Teams (BATs) are small units made up of Pakistani special forces and terrorists who conduct raids across the Line of Control (LoC).
The Indian army had foiled a BAT attack on its forward post along the LoC in Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir, killing at least five to seven intruders on Saturday.
"A BAT attempt was made on one of the forward posts in Keran sector (in Kupwara district) and foiled by alert troops resulting in neutralising of five to seven Pak regulars/terrorists," defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said.
Col Kalia also said that four hardcore Jaish-e-Mohammad militants were neutralised in two operations in which a cache of sniper rifle, IED and mine with Pakistan markings were recovered.
"This clearly indicates the complicity of Pakistan in terror activities. Security forces will continue to respond to all nefarious activities along the LoC and hinterland," he said.
India had later offered Pakistan to take over the dead bodies of its Border Action Team (BAT) regulars.
“Have offered Pakistan Army to take over the dead bodies (of 5-7 Pak BAT army regulars/terrorists). Pakistan Army has been offered to approach with a white flag and take over the dead bodies for last rites, they are yet to respond,” the Army said.
