Six militants killed as Army foils 5th infiltration bid in 3 days

The Army killed six militants near the Line of Control (LoC) as it foiled fifth infiltration bid from Pakistan into Kashmir in three days on Friday , raising to 12 the total number of infiltrators gunned down during this period.

The six militants were killed in Uri sector during a counter-infiltration operation launched on Friday after the troops detected movement of ultras trying to sneak into the valley, an Army official said

With this operation, the total number of infiltrating militants killed over the last three days in various sectors has gone up to 12

A defence spokesman had on Thursday said that multiple attempts made by Pakistan Army to push armed infiltrators across the LoC were foiled by the troops at Machhil and Naugam sectors in Kupwara district, Gurez in Bandipora district and Uri in Baramulla, resulting in the killing of seven militants

All the four infiltration bids were aided by the Pakistani forces who provided active support, including cover fire using heavy calibre artillery, the Army's Northern Command had said in a statement on Thursday
