Major infiltration bid by heavily-armed terrorists foiled along LoC in Kashmir

JAMMU: A major infiltration bid by a group of about half-a-dozen heavily-armed terrorists was foiled on Tuesday along the LoC in Kupwara district of north Kashmir, an Army official said.

A soldier was injured in the initial exchange of firing with the terrorists who were trying to sneak into the valley from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) through Machhal sector, the official said.

He said the group had sneaked about 500 metres inside the Indian territory when it was confronted by the alert troops, leading to a gunfight. (AGENCIES)
