No troops cut in Kashmir: Indian Army

SRINAGAR – Ruling out reduction of troops in Kashmir, Indian Army Friday said the terror infrastructure was still intact on the other side of the Line of Control where militants were waiting to infiltrate into the Valley.
“The situation cannot be normal as the militant infrastructure and intent across the border is alive as also their over ground network in the Valley. In this scenario, we cannot reduce the army presence,” General Officer Commanding of 15 Corps Lt Gen S A Hasnain told reporters here.
According to the Rising Kashmir, he said the infiltration bids are likely to increase in the next few days due to melting of snow. “However, we are ready to face the challenge,” he said.
Asked about the number of militants waiting to infiltrate, GoC said it was difficult to give an exact figure. “There can be 600 to 700 militants at the launch pads but the number can increase or decrease,” he added.
