Latest reports suggest that at least 60 terrorists from across the border have infiltrated into India, which is now keeping the security agencies on the edge.
These suicide attackers have reportedly been asked to target security forces, including the army, BSF, CRPF, SSB and J&K police.
The crossborder infiltration into India by armed insurgents has also heightened the concerns of Indian security forced which are conducting an investigation to the Pampore attack in which eight CRPF personnel were killed and 21 others critically wounded when terrorists rained bullets on a bus carrying them.
“First hand impression of the bodies of terrorists is that both appear to be Pakistanis, definitely from Lashkar, and in all likelihood they were fidayeen (suicide attackers),” Inspector General of CRPF Nalin Prabhat had said.
Security personnel recovered arms and ammunition including 2 AK 47 Rifles, seven grenades with ‘Pakistan Ordnance Factory” markings, medicines, track suits and shoes made in Pakistan, packets of dates not available in India, 11 magazines of AK-47 rifles and used/live rounds procured in Pakistan.
“It is definitely an LeT attack. The modus operandi, claim by outfit and investigation so far prove that,” said J&K DGP K Rajendra Kumar.
Intelligence agencies have launched a manhunt for Lashkar-e-Taiba divisional commander Abu Dujana, which is said to have organised the stay for the two militants and their travel to the attack site.
Reports suggest that Dujana is assisting these highly-trained militants coming from Pakistan with information on the movements of forces, logistics, and stay and arranging drop-offs at attack sites.
CRPF director general of CRPF, K Durga Prasad said he has interacted with senior CRPF officers in the Valley and discussed the plan for further securing the civilians and troops during the upcoming Amarnath Yatra.
