An unidentified militant was killed on Wednesday after security forces foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector of Baramulla district, sources said.
They said the bid was foiled by the alert troops in the Uri sector when they noticed a suspected movement.
“The terrorists were trying to infiltrate, taking advantage of poor visibility and bad weather. In the operation, so far one terrorist has been killed,” the sources said.
There is no official word from the Army or police so far on the counter infiltration operation.
Last week, BSF Director General Nitin Agrawal said that there are always attempts from across the border to push in more militants before the onset of winter and closure of tracks due to heavy snowfall.
