"No such thing happened at all. This is a blatant lie. We totally deny this baseless allegation," a Pakistani military spokesperson said.

Indian Army launches major anti-infiltration operation

Five Indian Army personnel were injured in the counter infiltration operations in the Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir that have been continuing for the last nine days after 30 to 40 terrorists had tried to infiltrate from multiple points on the Line of Control (LoC) on the night of September 24.

Although General Officer Commanding of the Army's 15 Corps Lt Gen Gurmit Singh had said that it will be premature to say whether the Pakistan Army was involved in infiltration, he said there were definite indications that some special troops were part of it.

He said that the analysis of this infiltration bid indicated the involvement of Border Action Team (BAT), a mixture of Pakistani regulars and militants.

"I can only say, analyzing the methodology of this infiltration, it was not a pure infiltration (attempt). It was a BAT-cum-infiltration (bid). The number of militants who attempted this infiltration was rather large. In fact, yesterday night 10 to 12 militants tried to sneak into the cordoned off area from across," he said.
