SRINAGAR (Agencies) - Indian Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor Saturday said the military was fully prepared to act or react in the manner the country's political leadership wanted it to in the wake of the Mumbai attacks. "As far as the military is concerned, it acts or reacts in a manner the country's political leadership wants it to," Kapoor, who is on a visit here, told media persons at the high security Badami Bagh headquarters. Pointing out that post the Mumbai attacks there had been extra movement of troops on the Pakistan side as tensions between the two countries ran high, he added: "These tensions had, however, come down now." At the same time, the terror infrastructure 'is very much in existence and continuing in Pakistan'. Kapoor said as the snows start melting and the high Himalayan passes reopen, the possibility of infiltration from across the border cannot be ruled out. "The security forces are taking all possible precautions to check infiltration through a three-tier mechanism," he maintained. He said 700-800 fighters, 40-45 per cent of them foreigners, were still active in Kashmir but the anti-militancy efforts of the security forces had yielded appreciable results. Asked about the timeframe for the army to return to the barracks in Occupied Kashmir, Kapoor said: "The military is here to perform a job and with a purpose. Once the situation is peaceful, we would be more than happy to go back to the barracks." On the Malegaon blasts, he said the army was fully ready to cooperate with the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) in its investigations. "Army's courts of inquiry do not excuse anyone once proven guilty of rights violations (or other crimes)," he added. The Maharashtra ATS has charged a serving army officer, Lt-Col Srikant Purohit, and two retired officers, among others, for the September 29 Malegaon blasts that claimed six lives. Gen Kapoor also visited some forward areas along the Line of Control.
