Jammu, Aug 09 (KINS): One militant was killed and two others were seriously injured as an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir was foiled, the Army said on Sunday.
According to news agency Kashmir Indpeth News Service (KINS), the Jammu based defence spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand said, “A group of militants were attempting to infiltrate across LoC in Krishna Ghati Sector, District Poonch on Friday (August 7).
“The alert Indian Army troops detected the militants close to LoC and immediately engaged them resulting in on the spot killing of one militant and serious injuries to other two” the spokesperson added.
He added that subsequent search in the area showed that the dead body of militants had been dragged away from the incident site.
However, one AK 47 Rifle, two AK 47 Magazines and some eatables were recovered from the incident site.
Pakistan markings on the eatables and a few other items clearly indicate the complicity of Pakistan in sponsoring terror activities in J&K. Security forces are maintaining a robust Counter Infiltration grid along the Line of Control to foil any nefarious designs by Pakistan.(KINS)
