At least one soldier lost his life on Thursday as the Indian Army foiled an infiltration bid in Naugam sector in Jammu and Kashmir. News agency ANI reported three terrorists have also been killed in the area by security forces.
“Alert troops foil another infiltration bid in Naugam sector. Two terrorists have been killed, while one soldier has been martyred,” an Army official said. The operation was still on and further details are awaited.
In the last 24 hours, this is the second successful anti-infiltration operation by the Army and the fourth such along the LoC in less than a fortnight in north Kashmir, reported PTI.
