New Delhi, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 18 September 2019, 09:49 AM

Amid ongoing tension over Kashmir, Pakistan is making desperate attempts to create tension on the Line of Control. The Indian Army thwarted the infiltration attempt, which was carried out by a team of Pakistani Special Service Group commandos on September 12-13. The army released the video of the brazen attempt on Wednesday. The one minute 44-second grainy clip shows Indian troops launching grenades at SSG commandos using Under Barrel Grenade Launchers. Indian troops eliminated the SSG team in Hajipur Sector of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. This clip exposes Islamabad’s constant denials. According to a report, Indian Army managed to foil over 15 infiltration attempts by Pakistan on the LoC.

Though there has been no confirmation from the army yet, it should be noted that Pakistani troops were forced to show white flags to retrieve bodies of their soldiers in the Hajipur area. It is yet to be known whether the infiltration clip is of that incident itself. Pakistan's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) had confirming that incident saying, "the soldier has been identified as Havaldar Nasir Hussain, who hailed from Narowal in Punjab. Havaldar Nasir Hussain had been serving the Pakistan Army for 16 years."

Last week, Pakistani army on Sunday targeted forward posts and villages in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district with heavy firing and shelling, violating ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC). The firing of small arms and shelling with mortars started in Sunderbani and Nowshera sectors, drawing strong and befitting retaliation by the Indian army guarding the LoC. On September 1, an army personnel was killed when Pakistani army targeted forward posts and villages in Shahpur-Kerni sector, raising the death toll in ceasefire violations by Pakistan in the twin districts of Poonch and Rajouri since July to eight—six soldiers and two civilians. Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan on September 6, along with Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa had visited the Line of Control (LoC) on Friday.

According to the statement by the ISPR, Khan was also accompanied by defence minister Pervez Khattak, foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and chairman of the special committee on kashmir Syed Fakhar Imam. Earlier, Bajwa threatened India saying they will fight till last bullet for Kashmir. "We are ready to give sacrifice for our Kashmiri brothers, will fulfill our duty till last bullet, last soldiers and last breath," Bajwa said in a televised speech. Previously, there were media reports that the Pakistan Army is using very High Frequency radio stations to send signals to the terrorists and terror groups in the Valley.

According to an IANS report, Pakistan is using its national anthem ‘Qaumi Taranah’ to transmit secret codes to the terrorists. The anthem was officially adopted by Pakistan in August,1954. The report says that the intelligence inputs show that the codes used by Pakistan for the terrorists are: 66/88 for Jaish-e-Mohammed, A3 for Lashkar-e-Toiba and D9 for Al Badr. The Pakistan Army’s Signal Corp is carrying out this task, the IANS report said. The report added that the radio stations in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir have been shifted closer to the Line of Control.
