New Delhi: With the security along the India-Pakistan border being increased in the wake of several terrorists attacks, the Lashkar-e-Taiba men are now planning to infiltrate into India through a different route.
According to sources, Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed is planning to use the rivers, Nikki Tavi and Badi Tavi, to enter India. Saeed has made Lashkar commander Abu Irfan Tandewala the in-charge of the operation.
If sources are to be believed, the Lashkar chief is planning a big strike on India. Sources said that at least eight to nine men are likely to be a part of this operation. The Pakistan Army, said sources, is allegedly helping them infiltrate the border.
Following the reports on terrorists planning to use a river route for infiltration, the vigil along all the rivers and streams in and around the border areas has been increased.
The Border Security Force (BSF) has deputed teams along several suspected infiltration routes.
According to sources, a record number of infiltration attempts along the international border have been witnessed this time. The BSF has foiled at least 15 infiltration bids since the surgical strikes of September 29.
All attempts were made either through rivers or jungles along the international border. Three rivers and 11 streams run along the India-Pakistan border.
