Srinagar, March 28 (by Fayaz Wani): A day after eight militants were killed in a gunfight near the defacto border in the Indian administered Kashmir, Indian army Sunday warned of a hot summer on militancy front in the restive region this year.

"This summer is going to be hot on the militancy front in Kashmir. Already 300 militants are active in Kashmir while 400 others are waiting to sneak into Kashmir from Pakistani controlled Kashmir (PcK) to create trouble in the region," Brigadier General Staff 15th Corps Gurmeet Singh told the media in Srinagar.

He said, "Around 400 infiltrators are ready to infiltrate into this side of Kashmir from 20 different launching pads in Pak. Besides some 280-300 militants are currently active in Kashmir".

He, however, said Indian army is prepared to deal with any situation. "We have reactivated the Counter infiltration posts along the Line of Control (LoC). These posts are being left unattended by the Indian army during the harsh winter months. We have also increased our deployment along the LoC and are repairing the damaged border fencing to thwart any attempt by militants to sneak into Kashmir," he said adding, "8, AK 47/56 rifles, one pistol, 3 UBGL grenades, 5 hand grenades, 1 GPS, 3 Thuraya set, 5 ICOM, 5 mobile phone, 3 map sheets, 2 matrix sheet, 1 binocular (high resolution), Indian currency 98, 000 out of which Rs 50,000 is fake were recovered from the slain militants".

Singh said the militants have changed their strategy and are now working in close coordination. "The Lashkar, Hizbul Mujahideen and other militants are working in tandem. The militants who were recently killed in the Keran sector belonged to Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hizbul Mujahideen and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen," he said.
