    Militants are waiting to infiltrate J-K during snowfall, says Indian army official

    Srinagar, Dec 12 (ANI): General Officer Commanding (GOC) of 15 Corps of the Indian Army, Lieutenant General Syed Atta Hasnain, on Monday said the militants are active in border areas and waiting to infiltrate Jammu and Kashmir during the snowfall in the valley.Terrorist (Militants) still remains in the launch pad, just the minor difference is that may be in northern areas we used to witness them more Huraiz, Machal Or Kiran's sector in comparison with that we have more knowledge that in the areas like Udi and Leepa more attentiveness is given by the commanders," he said.

    Hasnain said that due to the recent killing to various top militant leaders, the infiltrators are anxious to cross the borderline, so the forces are vigilant about the situation.

    "During winters, in the months of December and February, they make desperate attempts to infiltrate and we presume that such attempts would continue in the future mainly because the strength of militants has declined and in the current year, 2011, most of the militant leaders were eliminated that is why their desperation level would enhance," he said.

    Hasnain further said the continuous efforts of Indian Army was able to combat infiltration in 2011, and added that they are presently keeping a watch on the situation Afghanistan to prevent any such situation in the next year.

    "Our grit of counter-infiltration was very successful and because of this, infiltration didn't happen. However, it doesn't mean that similar would be the story in 2012. They will keep trying. Mainly, such situations would depend on the situation of the other side of the borderline. Neither in Pakistan nor in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, but what would be the situation in Afghanistan," he said. (ANI)

    Actually there has been a slight paradigm shift. Earlier, they used to try to infiltrate before snowfall started and closed the passes or at least made them difficult to cross. This time, they are planning on doing it during snowfall.

    The pressure is telling!

    Desperate measure by the militants. Kudos to our armed forces in reducing the infiltration. We need to be more vigilant though.

    The army probably mean that the infiltration attempts will be carried out in the non-snow regions, like Poonch, Mendhar, Rajouri etc.

    Not really. Infilt attempts are made as per proximity to area of ops. However, most of the jihadi vector towards the valley. The route from the west is across the LOC, they head towards, Hillkaka - Pir Panjal pass - Dubjan - Shopian.

    The hills are not as difficult to cross due to lower altitutes in the Jammu-Poonch region.
    The route from Pir Panjal pass - Dunjan - Shopian is/was under special highaltitute warfare teams.

    Infiltration depends on many factors.

    The defences and its state to include vigilance, if there is a change of unit and hence they will not be well conversant with the tricks employed in infilt, weather expected over a period of time, the expertise of the guides who will guide the infiltrators, the efficiency of the troops in the second line of defence, the state and efficiency of the sympathisers in that sector who will give the safe house or help in the logistics and so on.

    If AFSPA is made null in some sectors, it will be the ideal area to concentrate for infilt.
