Infiltration bid foiled on LoC; three PAK terrorists neutralized in Kupwara

Foiling another infiltration attempt on the Line of Control (LoC), security forces on Saturday eliminated two terrorists in the Uri sector of the Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir.

According to reports, Army personnel noticed suspicious movement along the LoC in the Gohallan area of north Kashmir's Uri sector, the officials said.

On being challenged, the terrorists opened fire, inviting a retaliation by the Army, the officials said.
Reports said there was an exchange of fire for some time which has now stopped. Two terrorists are believed to have been killed, but their bodies have not been recovered yet as the area is on the LoC.

The Army is maintaining a tight cordon in the area and efforts are on to recover the bodies.

Infiltration increased after the successful conduct of Lok Sabha elections in Kashmir

Infiltration attempts have been increased on the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) after the successful conduct of the Parliamentary elections in Jammu and Kashmir in general and Kashmir Valley in particular.

Last week, two terrorists managed to infiltrate from IB in the Hiranagar sector of the Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. After managing to sneak into this side of the border, the terrorists made an abortive attempt to take some villagers hostage but the brave inhabitants of Saida Sohail village of Hiranagar foiled their nefarious designs.

In a fifteen-hour-long encounter both the terrorists were eliminated by the security forces.
Today security forces foiled another infiltration attempt on the LoC in the Uri sector of the Baramulla district of Kashmir Valley.

Reports said that with the support of Pakistan, terrorists have established launch pads on the LoC and IB.
