URI: Mobile internet and phone services have been suspended in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir as the Army is engaged in a major counter-infiltration operation for the last 24 hours.
Officials said that suspicious movement along the LoC was detected late Saturday evening.
“An infiltration attempt has been made and we are looking for them. Whether they are still on this site or have gone back after they made the infiltration attempt. That issue has not to be clarified and verified on the ground. But, we are quite alert and we will ensure that minimal infiltration takes place,” the army’s Srinagar-headquartered 15 Corps commander, Lt Gen. D.P. Pandey told a TV channel.
