- PM chairs top meeting on security
- National Security Advisor Doval presents new intelligence inputs
- After surgical strikes, Pak infantry guarding terrorist staging areas
The NSA had briefed the PM and the Home Minister on the information, collected from intelligence agencies, prior to the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security, which met this morning for the second time since soldiers last week targeted seven terrorist launch pads or staging areas in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.
The group, which includes the Home, Foreign and Defence Ministers, was told that after India's action, the Pakistani infantry is protecting launch pads near the Line of Control or de facto border in Jammu and Kashmir. The locations of nearly a dozen launch pads have been identified, said sources at the meeting.
Intelligence agencies and the military are concerned that before winter sets in, covering the passes into India with snow, Pakistan will try to send across a large number of terrorists to launch fresh attacks against security forces and to re-instigate violence in the Kashmir Valley, which saw nearly 90 people killed and at least 10,000 injured in near-daily riots after the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani.
