by Editorial

While the Global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has begun deliberations on Pakistan’s compliance with international anti-terrorist financing norms, Pakistan continues to support terrorism by abetting smuggling of weapons across the Line of Control. On 12 October, alert Indian troops deployed at the Tangdhar Sector of North Kashmir, thwarted yet another attempt by Pakistan Army to smuggle weapons from PoJK. At 1830 hours, a joint search operation launched along with JKP recovered a bag with Five Pistols, Ten Magazines, 138 rounds of ammunition from a location close to the Line of Control. Currently the area is cordoned off and search is under progress. 

Last week, on 9 October, alert Indian troops deployed at the neighboring Keran Sector of North Kashmir had recovered Four AK 74 Rifles, Eight Magazines and 240 AK Rifle ammunition. At 2030hours, on 9 October, the surveillance detachment on the Line of Control detected movement on the banks of Kishen Ganga River (KGR) which is the alignment of Line of Control in that Sector. Immediately, a joint operation was launched with J&K Police. At approximately 2200 hours, the surveillance teams again detected 2-3 terrorists trying to transport some items in tube which was tied to a rope from far bank of Kishan Ganga river. Troops immediately reached the location and recovered two bags with Four AK 74 Rifles, Eight Magazines, 240 AK Rifle ammunition.
