would try to cross the LoC next week.
The terrorists have
moved forward from Kel sector to Doga area, sources said quoting the report.
Another report suggested that a group of six LeT militants, along with a local
guide, are also trying to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir through
“All formations of the
security forces were told about the information and they were asked to
intensify vigil,” sources said.
