Situation in the valley has heated up after the Indian Army mobilised additional troops in Kashmir and the Amarnath Yatra was cancelled based on specific terror inputs.
Recently, the Indian army had recovered Pakistan made IED and American M-24 sniper from the Amarnath Yatra route. On Friday afternoon, Chinar Corps Commander Lt General K.J.S. Dhillon held a press conference to apprise the prevailing situation in Jammu & Kashmir. He was accompanied by some other officers of the Indian Army.
While the land mine bearing marks of the Pakistan Ordnance Factory was displayed at the press conference, it certainly points out a definitive role of Pakistan in fueling terrorism in the valley.
