Four terrorists killed, infiltration bid foiled in J&K

According to news agency ANI, the security forces foiled infiltration bid by slain militants. The operation is underway.

Srinagar-based defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said the infiltration bid was foiled in Tangdhar sector.

The infiltration bid occurred a day after Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said that suspension of combat operations in Jammu and Kashmir can be extended further if the atmosphere of peace continues in the state, but any action by terrorists would trigger a rethink immediately.

General Rawat also said Pakistan should stop sending terrorists into the state if it was interested in peace. "If Pakistan really wants peace, then we will want them to take the first step by stopping infiltration of terrorists into our side. The ceasefire violation mostly takes place to aid infiltration," General Rawat told reporters at a function in Pahalgam, 95 kms from Srinagar.
