So far, three army personnel and five militants have been killed in the operation which began on Sunday. “In an ongoing operation at Baron Gali, Kalaroos, contact with infiltrators was re-established during the night and in the exchange of fire one jawan was killed and another was injured,” a defence spokesman said.
