"Our alert troops, using surveillance devices, caught a cache of arms being smuggled by Pakistan. This shows that the intentions of Pakistan are the same. We will continue to fight back their ill intentions in future also: Lieutenant General BS Raju, GOC Chinar Corps, said. "As per our intel agencies, there are around 250-300 terrorists at launchpads on the Pakistani side. We have been able to keep them at bay despite their regular attempts (of trying to infiltrate)," he added.
"This year, we have been able to thwart infiltration to a great extent. Last year figure of infiltration (from Pakistan) was around 130, this year it is less than 30. I believe this will help in improving the internal situation also," the Lieutenant General said.
