Srinagar: The Indian Army foiled an infiltration bid by militants along the Line of Control in Baramulla district of Kashmir, an official said on Tuesday.
There were no casualties in the incident and the militants were forced to retreat to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
“Army troops opened fire on a group of terrorists attempting to sneak into our territory on Tuesday night and forced them back across the Line of Control in Rampur sector of Baramulla district,” the official said.
The Army has launched a combing operation in the area to ensure that none of the militants managed to get in.
