Army today foiled an infiltration attempt by three armed militants from across the Line of Control (LoC) in the Sunderbani sector in the Jammu region a Defence spokesman said.
“Three unidentified militants were trying to sneak in through Line of Control in the general area Sukhtao Nala in Sunderbani Sector, of Rajouri district”, Jammu based officiating spokesman of Ministry of Defence S N Acharya told PTI.
He said that at around 6.30 am this morning three militants clad in Pathani Suits were spotted 30 meters inside the Line of control and were challenged by the army personnel manning the LoC.
“Our alert soldiers guarding the Line of Control challenged the terrorists who in turn started firing on our soldiers and started running back towards the line of control” Acharya said.
He said that the army troops returned the fire on the militants and foiled the infiltration bid.
No causality was reported, he said.
The infiltration bid comes a day after the Jammu and Kashmir deputy chief minister Nirmal Singh had said that the Pakistani side was desperate to carry out infiltration into the Indian side so as to disrupt the ongoing Amarnath Yatra.
“The Pakistan side is desperate to attack Amarnath Yatra and Vishno Devio Yatra, in the wake of the tightened security in the state and the tough stand of the Central government,” he had told reporters on the sidelines of a function yesterday.
