Indian Army Accuses Pakistan Army of Aiding Infiltrators in Uri Sector, Raises Ceasefire Violation Concerns

On September 16, the Indian Army accused the Pakistan Army of providing fire cover to infiltrators in the Uri Sector of Baramulla. In this incident, they killed three infiltrators near the Line of Control (LoC). On the fourth day of an anti-militancy operation in Anantnag, the Indian Army used cutting-edge equipment to launch pinpoint attacks on militant hideouts located in Gadool Hill.

The Indian Army charged the Pakistan Army with breaking the February 2020 ceasefire deal. This violation occurred during an anti-infiltration operation in the Uri Sector of the Baramulla area in north Kashmir.

The Indian Army killed three infiltrators in two gunfights that occurred in the Hathlanga area between 6:40 and 9:45 a.m. “Two bodies were recovered. However, one injured infiltrator exfiltrated with the help of fire cover provided by Pakistani posts. The Army’s quadcopters also came under fire from the Pakistan Army. However, the third militant too died [on the other side],” according to Army Brigadier P.M.S. Dhillon.

The Pakistan Army’s role in infiltration has once again been shown, according to the Army, “by providing fire cover and moral support.” Brigadier Dhillon stated that it demonstrates the involvement of the Pakistan Army in disrupting the peace in Kashmir.

He claimed that the infiltration attempt occurred when the Hatlanga area was experiencing bad weather and fog. “We used Under Barrel Grenade Launchers (UBGLs) and rocket launchers during the operation, which was called off around 2 p.m.,” according to Brigadier Dhillon.

The Army kept the identities and organizations of the insurgents who were killed confidential.

On September 16, the anti-militancy operation against militants camped out in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district entered its fourth day.

Lt. Gen. Upendra Dwivedi, the general officer in charge of the Northern Command, assessed the ongoing operations in the Kokernag forest area of Anantnag.

The top Army commander, according to an Army spokesman, was informed of the high-intensity operations by the ground commanders, “in which hi-tech equipment is being used for surveillance and delivery of firepower along with the high impact of precision fire by the forces.”

According to officials, there were loud explosions and sporadic shooting in the neighbourhood on Saturday as well.

During a Wednesday afternoon gunbattle with insurgents, three officers were killed. Two of them were from the Army, and one was from the J&K Police. In the ongoing encounter, two soldiers sustained injuries, and one soldier remains missing.

The operation, according to Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Vijay Kumar, was based on a particular information. Two to three terrorists who were trapped, he claimed, “will be neutralised.”

Three significant encounters occurred in Jammu & Kashmir this week. These gun battles led to the deaths of four soldiers. Additionally, five insurgents were killed.
