The assertion of Jammu Zone Additional Director General of Police Mukesh Singh came in the backdrop of the recent encounters between terrorists and security forces in the two districts.

Even though India and Pakistan agreed to ceasefire in February this year, a large number of terrorists’ movement has been noticed along the LoC, a senior security official told this newspaper.
The SSP said two bags with Pakistani markings containing approximately 25-30 kg of a drug-like substance were recovered.
During the searches, the NIA has seized various documents, digital devices and other incriminating materials from the premises of the suspects.
The officer said a large cache of arms and ammunition, including five assault rifles, seven pistols and grenades, were recovered.
On the intervening night of September 18 and September 19, Army said a suspicious movement was detected along LoC in the Uri area of Baramulla district.
The search operation was jointly launched by the police and the Army in the forest area of Barote Gali in Manjakote and parts of Thanamandi in the early hours of Sunday, the officials said.
This is the second infiltration bid foiled by the Army in the last five days.
These incidents gain importance after some reports about Jaish leaders meeting Taliban heads in Kandahar in the third week of August, in which they sought support in 'India-centric operations'.

Simultaneously, an official said, the Army has been constantly contacting the families whose children are likely to be brainwashed and asking them to take appropriate precautions against it.
