Militants trying to infiltrate India ahead of Obama visit: Lt. Gen. K.H. Singh

Around 200 militants in 36 launch pads across Pir Panchal range are trying to infiltrate into the Indian side, General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Kashmir-based 16 Corps of the Indian Army, Lieutenant General K.H. Singh said on Thursday.

There are inputs that militants might try to attack soft targets including schools and civilian areas ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit, Lt. Gen. Singh added.

There is every possibility that Pakistan will try to divert some of the fringe elements of the home grown terrorist outfits to Indian side, Lt. Gen. Singh said.
