Srinagar: Army claimed to have foiled a major infiltration bid by killing six militants in an ongoing operation at Keran sector of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district on Sunday.

Army’s Srinagar based defence ministry spokesperson Col Rajesh Kalia told GNS that the soldiers manning the fence along the LoC in the sector challenged the group of infiltrators.

“After being challenged, the infiltrators equipped with modern weaponry opened fire which was retaliated triggering off a gunfight,” he said.

In the ensuing gunfight, six infiltrators have been killed so far in the operation, he said.

“During searches, the bodies of all the six militants were recovered along with as many AK-rifles and a huge quantity of arms and ammunition,” he said.

He said that the identities and the group affiliation of the militants are being ascertained. (GNS)
