Pakistan Expanding ‘Arc Of Terror’ South Of Pir Panjal: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman


Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said Pakistan was resorting to ceasefire violations to assist infiltration and asserted that Islamabad was expanding its “arc of terror” to areas south of the Pir Panjal Range in Jammu region.

Sitharaman, however, said infiltration across the LoC had ebbed due to the deployment of the anti-infiltration obstacle system (AIOS) and a dynamic multi-layered counter infiltration grid.

“Pakistan is expanding the arc of terror to the areas south of Pir Panjal Range (Jammu region) and resorting to ceasefire violations to assist infiltration. These are being responded appropriately,” Sitharaman, who arrived here to take stock of the situation following the attack on the Sunjuwan Army camp, told reporters here today.

She said that security along the LoC was further being beefed up with electronic surveillance equipment. Read More…
