Army foils infiltration bid; one militant killed

September 23, 2013 16:40 IST

The army on Monday foiled an infiltration bid by militants along the Line of Control in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir, killing one ultra.

Troops patrolling the LoC in Macchil sector of Kupwara noticed some suspicious movement in the wee hours of Monday, defence sources said.

They said the army soldiers challenged the militants, who opened fire on the security forces' positions.

In retaliatory firing, one militant was killed and some arms and ammunition was recovered from the spot, the sources said, adding that the operation was still in progress.
