Keran infiltration: Operation over tomorrow?
As the gunbattle continued for the 15th consecutive day along the Line of Control (LoC) in Keran sector in the Kashmir Valley on Tuesday, the Indian Army on Tuesday said they are likely to declare their operation against alleged Pakistani infiltrators over by Wednesday.
"The Army sources say that the bodies of 15 terrorists killed may have either been dragged across the LoC, dropped in crevasses or buried in the thick jungles," reported CNN-IBN.
The Army also released aerial pictures of the terrorists killed in the gunbattle.
"We have recovered a large cache of arms and ammunition from Keran sector," Brigadier Gerneral Staff Colonel Sanjay Mitra told reporters.
The Indian Army is battling against 30-40 militants who had infiltrated in the Keran sector, which is located about 100 km from Srinagar.
"It is nothing like that (Kargil), it was an infiltration by 30 to 40 terrorists. They have been stopped," Army Chief Bikram Singh told reporters on Friday.
The Army Chief had assured that no village has been occupied by the terrorists and some of them were also mutilated by the Indian troopers.
