Four terrorists were killed as security forces foiled infiltration attempt in Jammu and Kashmir's Machil sector on Wednesday.
The incident took place late night on Tuesday when troops guarding the Line of Control noticed a group of militants trying to infiltrate into the Valley from across the border in Machil sector under the cover of darkness. According to sources, the operation is still on and weapons including 3 AK-47s recovered.
This is the third infiltration bid foiled by the Army in north Kashmir in the past fortnight.
On June 6, a class X student was killed when a bullet hit him during a cordon-and-search operation in South Kashmir's Ganowpora village on Tuesday.
As the forces were cordoning the village, people took out a demonstration and tried to obstruct the Army, Central Reserve Police Force and Jammu and Kashmir police's operation against militants, 5 km from Shopian.
The police said tear gas was used to disperse the protesters resulting in the death of 20-year-old Adil Farooq.
Farooq's killing later triggered protests in the area and people tried to give escape route to militants.
