NEW DELHI (TIP): Intelligence reports indicate that the Pakistan Army has beefed up its positions all along the Line of Control (LoC). More troops have been inducted in the area north of Sialkot and heavy artillery guns have been moved into the theatre this week in what is an apparent reaction to India’s cross-LoC strike of September 29.
The intelligence assessment, top sources have revealed, is that Pakistan’s additional deployment is to prevent any cross-LoC strike by the Indian Army in the near future. Pakistan’s aggressive LoC posture has been reported to the highest levels of Modi government, and counter-measures have been initiated.
“The Army is also strengthening its defences in cities like Muzaffarabad and other important towns in PoK as well as major cities like Lahore,” said a senior official.
Meanwhile, two global positioning system (GPS) sets, two wireless sets with code sheets of the kind used by Muridke-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror group has been recovered from bodies of three terrorists who were killed when they tried to attack a Rashtriya Rifles camp in Handwara in Kashmir.
Top sources said that Pakistan violated ceasefire at five places on the LoC using area weapons and mortars to target Indian positions.
