Army reveals Pak's terror plan, days after Rajnath slammed China-Pak 'mission'

Indian Army revealed Pakistan's plan to push terrorists across LoC days after the govt's China-Pakistan joint 'mission' revelation. Army said Intel suggests around 250 terrorists are waiting to infiltrate. “As far as winter time is concerned - like infiltration attempts are made during summer, only slightly lower levels of attempts are seen in winter. There is always an attempt to push terrorists across. If terrorists have been given equipment to hide and brave out the cold, we have much better equipment. Our capability to detect infiltrators is much better. We are stationed at positions on the ground which can prevent infiltration,” said Maj Gen Amardeep Singh Aujla. Pak's latest terror push comes amid tension between India, China at LAC. Days earlier, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had spoken on border tension. Singh said Pakistan & China are creating border disputes under a 'mission'. Watch the full video for more.
