Srinagar, Oct 23: Director General of Police Dilbag Singh Wednesday admitted that sizable infiltration has taken place after August 5 when Centre abrogated Article 370 and divided state into two union territories.
“Some infiltration by militants has taken place. However many of their attempts to sneak in have been foiled. Now we see ceasefire violation in Rajouri, Poonch, Samba, Hiranagar, Karnah, Uri, Machil, Gurez and Keran every day. Ceasefire violation is aimed at pushing militants into Kashmir,” Singh said.
The DGP said the exact number of militants who have sneaked in can’t be known, but the infiltration has been a sizable one.
“We feel the number is sizable. But I don’t see the number that big to worry us. Process is on to bring their number down,” he said.
Singh said lesser number of militants was worrying Pakistan and that is why “they are trying to push in more infiltrators”.
