A Pakistani intruder was gunned down along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district on Sunday as the Army foiled yet another infiltration attempt, reported news agency ANI. This comes a day after the Army thwarted a big infiltration attempt in Rampur sector of Uri and killed six infiltrators. According to the Army, it was the second biggest infiltration attempt foiled in the last one week.
“One intruder from PoK successfully killed in a Ambush at about 0230 hours yesterday night on LoC in KG Sector , body of intruder recovered,” Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta, Defense Spokesperson, was quoted as saying by ANI.
