New Delhi, Oct 4 (ANI): Asserting that there is no Kargil like situation in Jammu and Kashmir's Keran sector, Army Chief General Bikram Singh on Friday said the terrorists will be flushed out soon.

"There is nothing like that. It was an infiltration attempt by about 30 to 40 terrorists; they attempted this infiltration at four or five places. We had information about it. They have been stopped, prevented, neutralized some of them and operations are on to flush them out," said General Singh, when asked that there are media speculations about the present situation in Keran Sector being another Kargil.
