Pakistan has reportedly moved over 2,000 troops closer to Line of Control, a latest media report said on Thursday. According to a report by news agency ANI, the Pakistan Army has moved over 2,000 security personnel in Bagh and Kotli sectors. These areas are just 30 km from the Line of Control, the Ani report said. Indian Army is watching the troop movement closely, and the troops are on high alert, the ANI report quoted an Indian Army official as saying. At present, Pakistan’s troop movement is not deployed in ‘offensive posturing’, but India is watching it closely, the ANI report said.

Previously, there were reports that the Pakistan Army has deployed more than 100 Special Services Group (SSG) commandos along the Line of Control in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).  According to a report in ANI, the mobilisation could be a possible attempt to carry out BAT action against the Indian Army.

The report said that, the Indian Army is closely monitoring the activities of these commandos, who are seen working closely with the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and other terrorist groups, Army sources said here.

The Pakistan Army's SSG commandos have been actively taking part in ceasefire violations and have suffered casualties as well because of the Indian retaliations.  The Indian agencies have also seen the deployment of Pakistani commandos near the Sir Creek area in the Pakistani territory.

Recently intelligence inputs had suggested that JeM has deployed a team of around 12 Afghan jihadis in the Leepa Valley. Terrorist may try to carry out BAT action against Indian targets.

JeM chief Masood Azhar's brother Rauf Azhar held meeting with his terrorist launch commanders in Bahawalpur on August 19-20.

Terrorists are being readied for action along the borders to carry out 'stellar action' against major Indian cities.

Sources said that Pakistan agencies are also in the process of recruiting Afghan terrorists to carry out action against Indian security forces. Afghans are being recruited probably to replace the Kashmiri terrorists as local commanders.

The latest input from the Intelligence Agencies reveal that Pakistan backed ISI is planning a series of bomb blasts in India.
