The Army conducted a major operation along the Line of Control in Uri Sector for over 9 days. It was on September that the forces detected an infiltration attempt by terrorists, following which encounter broke out.

A huge cache of arms and ammunition has also been recovered from their custody. A total of 7 AK series weapons, 9 pistols and revolvers and more than 80 grenades and Indian & Pak currency were found in the Uri operation.

Pak hand in infiltration

According to the Indian Army, the infiltrators had the backing of Pakistani side as they were reportedly accompanied by the porters who came along these LeT terrorists with supplies.

“The movement of such a large group of people can’t take place without the complicity of the Pak army deployed on the other side,” said Major General Virendra Vats, GOC, 19 Infantry Division.

This infiltration attempt reportedly took place Salamabad nallah. It’s the same area from where terrorists had sneaked into Indian territory and carried out suicide attack at Uri Army base.
