BSF: ceasefire violations by Pak to infiltrate border
Border Security Force (BSF) Director General DK Pathak stated that the ceasefire along the borders in Jammu and Kashmir were frequently being broken by Pakistan to infiltrate India.
Pathak said, "One of the reasons or ploy on their (Pakistan's) part is for doing infiltration because on many occasions we have noticed movement of some undesirable elements across the borders. We feel that this is one of the reasons why they are doing the cross-border firing."
"They are encouraging this because infiltration is only from their side. If Pakistan is not helping them, there is no possibility of infiltration from their side to our side," he added.
This declaration comes two weeks after Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijuju had stated in Parliament on August 5 that Lakshar-e-Taiba founder and main accused in the Mumbai terror attacks Hafeez Saeed was holding rallies along the Line of Control that were "highly critical of India".
