The entire area has been cordoned off and massive search operation is also on to locate and lush out Pakistan-backed infiltrators.
Top Army officials have confirmed that there has been a massive infiltration attempt in the Shala Batu village.
They have said that 30 to 40 terrorists backed by the Pakistani Army have infiltrated into Keran.
Earlier, Army Chief General Bikram Singh had said that this is just a small infiltration attempt and should not be compared to Kargil.
