Indian Army foiled two major infiltration bids along the Line of Control in Naushera Sector, District Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir. A Pakistani terrorist was caught alive by the Indian army near the fence of the LoC. Alert soldiers deployed in the Jhangar sector of Naushera spotted the movement of two to three terrorists near the Line of Control.
One terrorist came close to the Indian post and tried cutting the fence when he was challenged by alert soldiers. The terrorist tried to flee, however, was brought down by the force's fire. Two terrorists who were hiding behind fled the area by taking cover of dense jungle and broken ground. The injured Pakistani terrorist was captured alive and provided with immediate medical aid and lifesaving surgery was carried out.
“The captured terrorist has revealed his identity as Tabarak Hussain, resident of Sabzkot village, district Kotli of Pakistan occupied Kashmir. On further interrogation, the terrorist confessed to their plan to attack the Indian Army Post. Tabarak Hussain stated that he was sent by a Colonel of Pakistan Intelligence Agency named Col Yunus Chaudhry who had paid him 30,000 Pakistani Rupees. Tabarak also revealed that he along with other terrorists had carried two/ three close recces of Indian forward posts with an aim to target them at an opportune time. The go-ahead to target the Indian post was given by Col Yunus Chaudhry on 21 Aug 2022.
