At a time when India and China are engaged in a major standoff in eastern Ladakh, the Indian Army has deployed over 3,000 additional troops on the Line of Control (LOC) to prevent infiltration attempts by Pakistan-backed terror organizations on Pakistan border.
Last month Indian Air force has deployed Tejas Fighter jets along the Pakistan border. And just few weeks back the Indian Navy has also deployed it’s warship in South China Sea to send a clear message to China.
The additional troops have been deployed primarily in the Kashmir region of the Line of Control to stop infiltration attempts by PKMKB, top government sources confirmed on India Today.
Source said the additional troops have been successful in foiling almost all major infiltration attempts on Pakistan Border and terrorists have been stopped from crossing over.
The army recently foiled an infiltration attempt in North Kashmir’s Gurez sector.
Sources said there are a couple of extra battalions of the Pakistan Army on the LoC in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, but it can’t be said they are there to help build pressure on India in support of China.
