    Terrorists in Pakistan ‘find new routes’ to India as the Army is warned of plots to target tourists in Kashmir Valley

    The September surgical strikes by Indian soldiers has left the Pakistani terror infrastructure bleeding and forced jihadis to chart new courses, sources have warned.Troops deployed on the Line of Control (LoC) have allegedly been told that terrorists may attempt to infiltrate using a mix of traditional and fresh routes where the terrain is difficult to be guarded.

    ‘The Army and BSF units deployed under them are guarding the routes from Uri, Tangdhar, Poonch, Nowgam, Naushera and Macchhil, which can be used for making entry into the Indian territory by terrorists who are desperate to disrupt peace here,’ said the sources.

    With the onset of summer approaching, it seems terror groups are planning to add to the heat by carrying out attacks during the tourist season in the Kashmir valley.

    Terrorists have also moved towards the LoC from their camps to cross over to India.

    ‘We have received inputs from agencies that there would be attempts made by the terrorists from across the Line of Control (LoC) to target tourists coming to Jammu and Kashmir this year for which they are already making preparations,’ Army sources told Mail Today.

    The intelligence agencies and Army spies have been keeping an eye on the movements across the Line of Control in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and inputs suggest that operatives of Lashkar-e-Taiba and other outfits are moving towards new launch pads to infiltrate, the sources said.

    A few small groups have even reportedly been seen by agencies towards Gulmarg and Tangdhar.

    Sources say some intelligence reports suggest that a few terrorists may have been successful in infiltrating and would be tracked by the troops on the ground there.

    Army sources said the units are also keeping an eye on suspected terrorist camps in PoK across areas where jihadis are expected to make infiltration attempts.

    Sources said the surgical strikes have had an impact on the deployment pattern of terror groups as they are now increasingly mingling with the civilian population to avoid being earmarked for action by Indian troops.

    The unexpected September raids saw a rare public announcement by India that it had launched a military operation across its de facto border with Pakistan.

    The action followed PM Narendra Modi’s warning that those India held responsible ‘would not go unpunished’ for a terror attack the same month on an army base in J&K’s Uri sector.

    ‘Terrorists are now creating their camp infrastructure very close to villages on the PoK side so that their bases cannot be differentiated from locals,’ they said.

    ‘Terrorist leaders were keeping civilians at camp sites in the past as well, but the camps merging with villages is a new development following the strikes.’

    Sources say terrorists are not even using the two camps and six launch pads that were destroyed by Special Forces.

    There is also suspicion terrorists have been able to cross over from Poonch but units there are not confirming it.

    Forces are also keeping an eye on surrendered terrorists and the ones who have returned from Pakistan via Nepal as they are providing support infrastructure to infiltrating groups from there.

    ‘One Ruda Ul Ameen Dar was a surrendered terrorist, but was killed by forces sometime back in Kashmir. He was providing all kinds of support to militants,’ said sources.
