DGP said Pakistan was trying its best to keep the militancy going in Jammu and
Kashmir by sending in militants from across the Line of Control (LoC) and the
international border under the cover of ceasefire violations, especially after
the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave a special status
to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, on August 5 last year.
number of ceasefire violations has increased after August 5 (2019). Pakistan is
trying to keep the borders hot in order to push in as many terrorists as
possible. While some attempts of infiltration have been successful, many have
been foiled,” he said.

the Jammu region for around 10 minutes, but was pulled back after the troops of
the border-guarding force opened fire.
response to a question, the DGP said he would not be able to give the exact
number of militants waiting to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir from across
the LoC, but maintained that terror launchpads were active during the winter
months as well.
there would not be much activity at the launchpads during the winter months as
snow would cover the passes. This winter, however, the movement at the
luanchpads did not reduce,” he said.
