2 militants killed in Keran firing
Srinagar, Oct 4: Two militants were killed by the Indian Army in Kupwara district of Kashmir on Friday morning, where the Army foiled an infiltration bid.

Probing fire by the Army has not been returned by the militants in 24 hours

Two intruding militants were killed in the Keran sector at the Line of Control (LoC), when alert troops of the Army spotted a group of infiltrating guerrillas and challenged them, a defence spokesman said.

The Army's operation against the 30-40 infiltrators in Keran sector has entered the 11th day on Friday.

The Army has claimed to kill 15 of these surrounded militants but so far no bodies have been recovered.

Defence sources said that for the last 24 hours, the probing fire by the Army has not been returned by the militants in the area where the Army is proceeding very cautiously to clear the cordoned area.

The first encounter took place on September 24 in which five Indian soldiers were wounded. Sources have told that the intruders are standing on their ground and are firing along a front of 4 to 5 kms.
