Rangreth: Army has put its troops along the LoC on alert to scuttle any infiltration attempt from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) with snow melting in the upper reaches opening mountain passes, a top Army commander said on Thursday.

"As temperatures go up and the snow starts melting, our neighbouring country Pakistan tries to push more and more terrorists into our land. But our army is alert (to scuttle the attempts)," General Officer Commanding of Srinagar-based 15 corps Lt Gen Om Prakash said.

He said alertness of the troops on the Line of Control (LoC) led to the killing of three militants who attempted to sneak into the Valley from across the border in north Kashmir a few days ago.

"Few days ago, we killed three terrorists who tried to infiltrate. So, we are alert and our surveillance is on so that we can stop infiltration," the army commander said.

He said security forces were able to eliminate militants in the Valley with the help of the people and the day is not far when Kashmir will be completely peaceful.
