Jammu and Kashmir: Army kills two militants in Naugam sector, foils infiltration bid along LoC

Srinagar: The army on Monday foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Naugam sector of north Kashmir, killing two militants.

"Suspicious movement was noticed along the LoC in Naugam sector last night and the terrorists were tracked till dawn, when they were challenged by troops," an army official said.

He said in the ensuing gunfight, two militants have been killed so far as the operation was in progress.

On 10 June, a militant was killed as the army thwarted an infiltration attempt along the LoC in Gurez sector of Bandipora district in north Kashmir.

A defence spokesman had said that multiple attempts made by Pakistan army to push armed infiltrators across the LoC were foiled by the troops at Machhil and Naugam sectors in Kupwara district, Gurez in Bandipora district and Uri in Baramulla, resulting in the killing of seven militants early in June.

In Poonch district, on 12 June, the army had again foiled an infiltration bid along the LoC.
