As many as six militants were reportedly killed on Saturday morning as the Army stopped another attempt of infiltration along the Line of Control in Rampur sector, reported TV channel India Today. According to the agency, the Army was conducting a search operation in the region and acted after troops noticed suspicious movement along the LoC in Rampur sector in the early hours. “Operation abhi on hai. Militants phanse huye hain aur dono taraf se firing chal rahi hai (the operation is still on, militants are trapped and firing is going on from both ends), an Army officer told the agency.
The infiltration attempts in the region have increased recently with the onset of summer. On Friday, Indian Army for neutralised two Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector. The defence experts praised this move and said it will break the myth of the supremacy of the Pakistani BAT. Defence Expert P. K. Sehgal said Pakistan has recently deployed BAT all along the border to scare the Indian Army but the reverse has taken place.

“The so called myth of the supremacy of the Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) stands demolished for all times to come. With the change of strategy of the Indian side (wherein we will be on the offensive, we will dominate the Line of Control (LoC)), this is the first time when the BAT tried to ambush the Indian Army patrol and the result is there for all to see,” Sehgal told ANI. Meanwhile, another expert SR Sinho also praised the move.
“In Uri sector, the Pakistani BAT again tried to ambush our patrolling party, but they were alert and they have learnt from the previous action and so, they were able to neutralise this attack of the BAT. Both the BAT personnel were killed…I think the Pakistanis should stop this nonsense,” Sinho told the agency.
