The infiltration comes after General Bipin Rawat had issued a warning to Pakistan to shut down terror operations in Kashmir. He said, “Pakistan is continuously violating ceasefire, causing damage to life and property. When such things happen, we can’t remain silent. If Pakistan wants peace, they should take initiatives to stop terrorists who infiltrate to vitiate the atmosphere.”
He also accused Pakistan of violating ceasefire through infiltrations. He also said the India expects peace at the borders. It said that the Pakistan needs to shut down its terror camps for peace to return at the borders.
Last week, the Centre had announced ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan. The Home Minister however, reiterated that the security forces have the right to retaliate if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of the people.
