A terrorist was on Sunday killed as the army foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control in Machil sector in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
Troops guarding the LoC noticed suspicious movement along the LoC and immediately challenged the intruders.
In the ensuing firefight, one terrorist was killed.
"An infiltration bid was foiled in Machil sector today. One terrorist has been killed,” a defence spokesman said.
He said the operation is in progress.
This year, the army has foiled a total of 22 infiltration bids along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, and 38 armed intruders have been eliminated in such operations.
