Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Dilbag Singh on Thursday said that Pakistan is desperately trying to push more and more terrorists before the onset of winter.

He, however, asserted that forces are alert to foil any evil design from across the border. Interacting with media persons at Shopian, the DGP repeated that launching pads and training camps of the terrorists are still active across the border to push infiltrators on this side of the border.

"Infiltration attempts were made from Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB), J&K Police and security forces have tracked down many of these infiltrators", he said.

The DGP said there is a possibility that before winter sets in, some more infiltration bids would be attempted. Before the onset of winter, Pakistan would try to push more and more terrorists before it would not be possible to cross the LoC after the snowfall.

Three dozen Pakistani terrorists were eliminated this year

The DGP said that during the current year around three dozen Pakistani terrorists affiliated with Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) were neutralized which indicated the involvement of Pakistan and its agencies in fomenting trouble in Jammu and Kashmir. He said that J&K Police, Security forces, and the people of J&K would continue to work together to foil their evil intentions and further strengthen the peace.
