Internet services and mobile phones have been shut down in the Uri sector in northern Kashmir since Monday morning.

Internet services and mobile phones have been shut down in the Uri sector in northern Kashmir since Monday morning. Authorities say an attempted break-in was made on Saturday night to mark the fifth anniversary of the Uri attack.

According to government sources in Delhi, a group of about six infiltrators managed to sneak through Pakistan. He said a soldier was wounded in the shooting during an infiltration attempt. The army said an operation was underway to locate the intruders and that the exact situation on the ground was not yet clear. This is the first time phone and internet services have been shut down as a result of cross-border infiltration efforts.
The military says it is the second such offer since the India-Pakistan ceasefire agreement in February. The military says no ceasefire has been violated since. “We are prepared for any ceasefire violation. But to be honest, there were no outbursts from across the border,” said Lieutenant General DP Pandey, officer. General in command of the 15th Corps.
He said that there have been some intrusion attempts this year as in the past and they are looking for intruders in the Uri sector. “There has been an operation in Uri in the last 24 hours, in which we feel there was an infiltration attempt. We are looking for you. Whether they are on this side or have backed down after trying, the issue has not been clarified or verified on the ground, ”General Pandey said.
