Two militants were killed as troops foiled an infiltration attempt along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir early on Monday, an Indian army spokesperson said.
Jammu-based Defence Public Relation Officer Lt Col Devender Anand said the operation is still underway in the area.
“In the early hours of August 30, militants from across the Line of Control made an attempt to infiltrate in the Poonch Sector. Alert Army troops detected the infiltration bid by effective use of the integrated surveillance grid,” he said.
“Two militants attempting to infiltrate across the LoC have been killed by the troops of the Indian Army who remain ever-vigilant in discharging their duties,” he said.
The body of one militant along with an AK-47 rifle has been recovered. The body of the second militant along with an AK-47 rifle was seen across the LoC, Lt Col Anand said.
