Army foils infiltration bid in J&K, kills 6 militants


Six militants were killed as the Army on Saturday foiled a major infiltration bid along the Line of Control in Rampur segment of Jammu and Kashmir`s Baramulla locale.

Troops saw suspicious development along the LoC in Rampur division in the early hours, an Army official said.

He said a firefight broke out between the infiltrators and the Army, bringing about the disposal of six ultras up until now.

An inquiry operation was going ahead in the region, the authority said.

Rampur segment is nearby the Uri sector where the Army on Friday foiled an assault by Pakistan`s Border Action Team (BAT) and killed two interlopers.

In the interim, no less than two militants were killed today in an experience with security forces in Tral zone of Pulwama area in Kashmir.

Security powers propelled a cordon and search operation in Soimoh town of Tral, 36 kms from here, after data about the presence of some top Hizbul Mujahideen aggressors in the territory, a police official said.

He said as the security forces were shutting on the house where the militants were concealing, the ultras opened fire.

The security forces retaliated, killing two militants.

The operation was in progress when last reports came in.
