Two militants were killed as the Indian Army foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector of north Kashmir's Baramulla district on Sunday morning. The operation is still in progress.

"An infiltration bid was foiled in Uri sector and two terrorists have been killed," an army official said in Srinagar, according to PTI.

Earlier on Saturday, in south Kashmir's Pulwama district, one policeman was killed after militants attacked a patrol party.

The deceased was among the two personnel who sustained injuries during the attack. "Militants fired upon a naka party of police near Rajpora police station in Pulwama, resulting in injuries to two of our personnel," Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police SP Pani had told PTI.

The injured constables — Abdul Salam and Munir Ahmad — were rushed to a hospital for treatment and their condition was stated to be stable. However, one of them died later.

In Shopian district also, on the same day, militants attacked a camp of Jammu and Kashmir Police's Special Operations Group with a grenade but it exploded in the compound without causing any damage, the police said on Saturday.

On 24 September, a militant was killed in an encounter with security forces in Uri area near the Line of Control in Baramulla district.
