Jammu and Kashmir: Indian Army foils Pakistan's intrusion bid

Representational pic- Army foils infiltration bid

The Pakistani troops fired at Indian posts using light weapons in the Keran sector, an army official said.

Indian Army successfully retaliated and fired at the intruders forcing them to retreat.

On May 26, Army foiled a similar BAT attack along the LoC in Uri sector of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, killing two militants.

He further said the Pakistani Army had initiated "unprovoked and indiscriminate" firing of small arms, automatic and mortars from 8.15 am onwards in the Poonch and Bhimbher Gali sectors.

Sources said that off-late several infiltration attempts by the Pakistan Army to push in terrorists from across the worldwide border and the LoC have been successfully foiled by the Army and the BSF.




On July 10, Pakistan Rangers handed over 78 Indian prisoners, mostly fishermen, to the BSF at the Wagah Border after they were released from a jail in Karachi.

"The border dwellers, in spite of the hardships they face, have asked us to take strong action against cross-border shelling".

Ever since the mutilation incidents, Indian forces have kept a close eye for BAT squads who attempt to cross the border to target Indian Army.

The de facto border and also the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir have once again turned hot and active hostilities are taking place on nearly daily basis.

The ceasefire violation resulted in the death of a 22 years old boy, Muhammad Razik, resident of village Balakot, and injuries to four others, including three females.
