Following the change in the stance of India at the LoC, a lot of Pakistani soldiers have been killed and being proactive on the LoC, the Army seeks to not only prevent infiltration but to also claim moral ascendancy over Pakistan.

Sources said the army's 4/1 GR and 20 Dogra on Wednesday night noticed a group of militants along the LoC fence near Pika 1 and Pika 2 posts at Nowgam after which they were challenged.

In its statement, the Indian Army said that it has foiled 22 infiltration attempts and killed 34 armed intruders in the current year.

They said that the latest infiltration bid was foiled in Nowgam sector of north Kashmir's Kupwara district, around 130 kilometres from Srinagar.

In Gurez, terrorists trained by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence abandonned their positions and retreated into Pakistan-occupied territory, leaving behind their weapons and supplies. "They were challenged. In the ensuing firing exchanges, two soldiers have been injured", the official said.




Reports said two army men were injured after militants fired upon them while trying to infiltrate along LoC in Uri sector of Baramulla district. "Seven armed intruders have been eliminated so far".

“Alert troops foiled an infiltration bid in Naugam sector.

"Relentless operations by security forces have defeated desperate attempts by Pakistan and its agents to spread terror in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan", the statement said.
