“There have been some attempts. Unlike previous years, these have not been adequately supported (by ceasefire violations). There have hardly been any successful attempts, only about two attempts have succeeded. One was neutralized in Bandipora and we are looking for the second one,” he said.
The General Officer Commanding (GoC) of the Srinagar-based 15 Corps said that the Indian army is on alert and prepared in case of any violation of infiltration in the region.
“We are totally prepared for ceasefire violations, if anything happens, we are all set to respond appropriately. But frankly, there has been no instigation from across the border,” the general said.
