Army chief Gen Bikram Singh on Tuesday said troops have finally foiled the “desperate infiltration bid” by terrorists in Keran sector in Jammu & Kashmir that began on September 24.
He sought to clarify that the infiltration attempt was not an “intrusion” as the enemy was not occupying higher ground but sitting in a nallah, or rivulet.
“It was a desperate infiltration bid, which has been foiled,” Gen Singh told reporters here on the sidelines of the Air Force Day parade.
The Army Chief said that seven of the terrorists involved in the Keran sector had apparently pulled out from there and tried to infiltrate from other areas but were gunned down by the security forces.
Gen Singh was asked if the situation was 'very bad' in Keran sector, where the encounter had been going on between Indian Army troops and terrorists backed by suspected Pakistani special forces for the last 15 days.
“A large number of channels have talked about this being an intrusion. It is not. If this was intrusion, the adversary would go and occupy dominating ground which is defensible…In this case, they were sitting in a nallah. Which adversary is going to dominate an area by sitting in the nallah?” he asked.">Keran infiltration bid foiled, Army chief claims
