Srinagar: The tense situation in Jammu and Kashmir over Article 370 has put the security forces, including the Indian Army, Indian Air Force (IAF) and security bases in the territory on high alert against a possible attack by Pakistan-backed terrorist groups.

The official sources of ANI said that measures have been taken against possible attack by the terrorist groups to carry out attacks in view of Pakistani efforts to create disturbances in the Kashmir valley.

The Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir BVR Subrahmanyam today said there were credible inputs that organisations involved in cross-border terrorism were planning to undertake strikes in the region in the immediate future to create fear, and block development.

Indian Army sources had also said that Pakistan has upscaled ceasefire violations to “show Kashmir as potential flashpoint” and “seek world’s attention”.

Earlier, a Pakistan Army spokesperson had blatantly claimed that five Indian soldiers had died in the ongoing ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC).

The Indian Army on Thursday refuted the claims on the killing of Indian soldiers in ceasefire violations along  LoC in Jammu and Kashmir.
