The Indian Army had foiled a major Pakistani attempt of infiltration on 30 July and 12-13 September according to footage of the enemy’s misadventures released today. These were unsuccessful attempts to infiltrate into India, the first among the reports being one through the Kupwara sector along the LoC. In the video dated July, Pakistani intruders can be seen trying to infiltrate into India.

The Indian Army got a whiff of this nefarious act of terrorists. The Army started firing, which made the intruders retreat. Before that, the terrorists had crossed the LoC already — apparently in a bid to attack the Indian posts in the area.

Before the midnight of 12 and 13 September when Pakistan had yet another attempt at pushing its terrorists into India, the Army had already thwarted several infiltration attempts near the LoC. The Army had killed a suspected BAT commando during one such attempt by Pakistan. The Army has released a video of that incident, too, which was captured through a hand-held thermal imager.

Security agencies had suspected that these intruders could be commandos of the Border Action Team (BAT) of Pakistan’s Special Services Group. The incident took place in the Hajipir sector of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Earlier this month, the Army had foiled two Pakistani soldiers near the Hajipir sector. The Pakistani Army carried back the dead bodies of its soldiers, hoisting white flags. An officer said, “Pakistan had tried to infiltrate in the same area in the night of 11 and 12 September and then in the night of 12 and 13 September. These efforts may be attempts made by BAT. This area is with the soldiers of Pakistani Special Services Group. These intruders tried to enter through the border due to which another Pakistani soldier was killed in the night of 12 and 13 September. The attempt was thwarted by a grenade attack from the Indian Army.”

Earlier, in the last week of July, the attempt to infiltrate a BAT commando was thwarted. Pakistan has not yet claimed the bodies of five BAT commandos lying near the forward post near the LoC.
