Srinagar, Oct 17 (TIWN) : Infiltration along the Line of Control with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir has reduced substantially, said the Indian Army's commander in Kashmir Lieutenant General B.S. Raju, pointing that a lot of efforts, including use of drones, have been put in by ground troops to dominate the area.

 The Line of Control is a de facto border between India and Pakistan in the region of Kashmir.  Last year, there were 130 infiltrations that took place and this year 27 have been reported till date.  The 15 Corps General Officer Commanding Lieutenant General B.S. Raju said that on Line of Control things are "quiet". "We have been able to stop infiltration substantially. That's a combination of a lot of efforts put in by ground troops to dominate the area," said the officer adding that additional strength has been placed along the infiltration grid.
