Army Chief General MM Naravane said that 350-400 terrorists are sitting in terrorist training camps and launch pads operating in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, however, the army is fully alert. Naravane said this at the Army's annual press conference on Wednesday. He said that information has been received from intelligence sources that a large number of terrorists are present in terrorist camps across the border in the western sector. Although infiltration from the Line of Control reduces during winter, such a threat may increase from the International Border side in Jammu.

He said that there have been only a few incidents of violation since February last year following the agreement reached with the Pakistan Army to stop the firing. This has helped to normalize the situation to some extent but the threat of infiltration has not reduced.

According to the Army Chief, the threat in the western sector has not subsided and hence we have to remain alert. He also talked about the continuous improvement in the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir with the stand of the government.

Naravane acknowledged that the use of drones has increased the challenge and they are being used in the smuggling of drugs as well as weapons. It is increasing the threat but both the army and the home ministry are taking measures to deal with it.
