New Delhi: With no concrete action being taken to dismantle the 42 anti-India terror training camps across the border, Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor on Friday said Pakistan was continuing to push militants into Jammu and Kashmir. 'Our neighbour is continuing to infiltrate militants from across the border into J&K. It (infiltration) will continue. Forces are deployed along the border and they will make all efforts to stop the infiltrators there,' said Gen Kapoor. 'If some militants do come in, our forces will tackle them,' he said, adding that more attempts were being made to push militants into J&K from south of the Pir Panjal ranges since many mountain passes were still snowed under. Asked about the Union home ministry's rehabilitation plan for Kashmiri youths who want to return from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, which has generated some political debate, Gen Kapoor said, 'I am sure the government and the home minister will look at all aspects before a final decision is taken.' 'They are looking into it. I am sure they will take the views of all ministries including the defence ministry and whenever a decision is taken, it will be good for everyone,' he added.
