Indian Army Chief Bikram Singh today said there was no ‘Kargil-like situation’ in Jammu and Kashmir, where an encounter to stop a major infiltration attempt from across the border has entered the 11th day.
His comments came as two terrorists were reportedly killed this morning during another infiltration bid at Guguldhar area near the Keran sector where Indian troops have engaged in an encounter since September 24, when almost 40 terrorists tried to cross over from Pakistan.
There has been concern that the current infiltration attempt might lead to a situation similar to 1999, when India and Pakistan engaged in an armed conflict after Pakistanis occupied key posts in Kargil. Especially after reports suggested that at least a dozen terrorists may have dug into abandoned houses in the village of Shala-Batu in Keran, which is 100 km from Srinagar, to fire at Indian soldiers.
But the Army chief denied this today. “It is nothing like that. We are dominating from all sides and the terrorists are holed up. The terrain is very, very difficult, treacherous and they are stuck in that. We will get them out, it’s a question of time,” said the army chief.
