Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on Wednesaday informed by meeting National Security Advisor Ajit Doval that nearly hundred terrorists are being prepped to cross the Line of Control and launch attacks in India, an NDTV report has said.

 

He informed this to the prime minister during the Cabinet Committee on Security meeting, which was chaired by the prime minister  in the national capital as tension continues at the India-Pakistan border.

 

Prior to the meeting, he had briefed the PM and the Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the information, collected from intelligence agencies.

 

The committee which consist of Home, Foreign and Defence Ministers, was informed that after India's action, Pakistani infantry is protecting launch pads near the LoC or de facto border in Jammu and Kashmir. 

 

The situation continues to remain tensed at India-Pakistan border since the September 18 attack at army’s Uri camp in Jammu and Kashmir which left 19 soldiers dead. 

 

India blamed Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist  group for the attack.

 

Relations between the two neighbouring dipped further low after the Indian Army last Wednesday  night carried out surgical strikes to destroy terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
