Jammu, Nov 24: The Indian Army on Thursday said it foiled two infiltration bids from across the Line of Control (LoC) into Jammu and Kashmir during the last 18 hours.

The Indian Army's Udhampur headquartered Northern Command said: "Two infiltration attempts were foiled in the last 18 hours."

"Alert troops push back intruders in Gulmarg and Nowgam sectors after heavy exchange of fire."


The army sources told IANS that there was no casualty among its soldiers when these two infiltration bids by militants from the Pakistani side were foiled.

On Wednesday, the Army launched a counter offensive against Pakistan along the LoC after three Indian soldiers were killed, with body of one of them mutilated in a cross-LoC attack, even as Pakistani troops continued to shell Indian positions, injuring two six jawans.

The offensive came hours after the Indian Army vowed "heavy retribution" to the attack on its soldier.
