Army foils infiltration bid along LoC in Kupwara

A Pakistani terrorist was killed by the Indian Army following an infiltration attempt across the Line of Control in the frontier district of Kupwara in northern Kashmir on Sunday. 

In an incident that took place on January 1, the Indian Army said the truce agreement between the armed forces of India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) had been completely violated. 

“An infiltration or BAT action (Pakistan Army’s Border Action Team) was attempted in the Keran Sector of Kupwara district on January 1. Swift action by the troops deployed at the LoC foiled the bid and eliminated the terrorist,” an Indian Army official said. 

According to army officials, the incident site is located on the Pakistani side of the Anti-infiltration Obstacle System, which is under surveillance by the Indian Army to prevent any nefarious activities by infiltrators or the Pakistani Army. 

“The ambush was sprung at the opportune moment and the infiltrator eliminated. The body of the slain infiltrator was recovered along with an AK-47 and large quantity of ammunition, including seven grenades,” army officials said.
