Srinagar: At least five terrorists were killed in a gunfight with Pakistan as the Indian army foiled an infiltration bid from across the de facto border early on Saturday, officials said.
The operation, which is still in progress, was launched in north Kashmir border area of Tanghdar.
“An infiltration bid was foiled in Tangdhar sector early this morning. Five terrorists were killed while attempting to cross the border into India. The operation is in progress,” a defence spokesperson said.
This is the first infiltration bid to be foiled near the line of control (LoC) with Pakistan since the Union government declared a unilateral ceasefire in view of Ramzan recently.
