India launched military raids into a Pakistan-controlled part of Kashmir to destroy camps hosting militants planning terrorist attacks, an Indian Army spokesman said.

The Army said punitive fire assaults are being undertaken across the LoC. "Pakistani posts actively help infiltration", said an army officer.

Major Gen Narula said Army wants peace and tranquility in J&K and for this terrorism and infiltrations need to be curbed.

"Infiltrations are likely to increase with melting of snow and opening of passes".

"The Pakistani Army has been providing support to armed infiltrators by engaging our forward troops from their weapon emplacements and pill boxes closer to the LoC. The Army is all geared up to counter such threats", he said.

Reacting to the Army's step, Shiv Sena leader Arvind Sawant said that though Army has come out late but came strongly against Pakistan. They also released the video of the shooting which included loud explosions thick smoke due to the fire. The encounter took place on Saturday and ended on Sunday, informed Narula.
