Although Indian security forces regularly foil infiltration bids along the Line of Control (LoC) as militants attempt to cross over from Pakistan, 12 militants have reportedly crossed over into India from Pakistan with the aid of Al-Qaeda commander Zakir Musa, with plans to conduct a terror strike.

According to reports, Musa helped the militants cross over from areas like Gulmarg in groups of 4 each and enter Kashmir. Since snowfall is expected to hit the region from the next month itself, militant groups are trying to bring in as many militants as possible before the border becomes difficult to navigate.

Intelligence reports suggest that al-Qaeda commander Zakir Musa, along with other Pakistan-based terror groups are planning an attack to disrupt the peace in Jammu and Kashmir.

Zakir Musa is said to have advised the new group of terrorists to keep changing their mobile phone SIM cards and to avoid using mobiles as much as possible to avoid being tracked by security agencies.

Tensions between India and Pakistan are at an all time high, even as Pakistan is facing international pressure for providing safe havens to terrorists. Apart from infiltration attempts, India is also facing increasingly frequent ceasefire violations from the Pakistani security forces along the border in Jammu and Kashmir. Narcotics smugglers from Pakistan have taken to using divers to transfer drugs from Pakistan to India by means of water channels in Pakistan.
