"Suspicious movement was seen close to the International Border in Samba sector late last night", a BSF officer said today.

Alert BSF troops fired upon the infiltrators forcing them to return, he said, adding that no more movement was not seen later.

The Army on Thursday claimed to have foiled an infiltration bid by Pakistani militants along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Tangdhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir. "An infiltration bid was successfully repulsed by the alert Army troops in the Tangdhar sector in north Kashmir during the early hours of 31 January, 2018," the army said in a statement.

According to Army, four terrorists attempted to infiltrate under the cover of darkness and thick forest in the mountainous terrain in the general area of Kalban in Tangdhar, but were spotted by the troops.

Facing a heavy firing from the Army personnel, the terrorists were seen running away into the thick forest towards the LoC, the statement said.
