Srinagar: Three heavily armed terrorists were killed after security forces foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) near Madiyan Nanak post in Kamalkote  sector of Uri in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Thursday, police said.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Baramulla, Rayees Ahmad Bhat told media in Baramulla that following specific intelligence from Army intelligence agencies about a possible infiltration bid along the LoC on the afternoon of August 24, multiple ambushes were laid to trap the infiltrators. Intensive electronic surveillance of the suspected area led to the detection of the (infiltration) attempt at 7 am on August 25, he said.

“Terrorists were hoping to use the cover of thick undergrowth, foliage and continuous rain and low clouds to infiltrate.  The contact with terrorists was established at about 08.45 AM on 25 Aug 22 in the forward areas on Indian side of the LoC, leading to heavy exchange of fire in which three terrorists were killed,” SSP Baramulla said.

He further said during the combing and search operation in the area, dead bodies of three terrorists, two AK rifles, one Chinese M-16 rifle along with other war like stores were retrieved.

Srinagar-based PRO, Defence, Col Emron Musavi said, “Indian Army’s successful operation has not only led to the elimination of three Pakistani terrorists, but also has resulted in thwarting Pakistan’s nefarious design and intent to disrupt peace, prosperity and normalcy in J-K.”

The use of electronic surveillance and intelligence-based operations continue to be mainstay of the Army’s operations against Pakistan-sponsored terror in J-K, Col Musavi said.

Earlier in the day, the Kashmir Zone Police tweeted, “Army and Baramulla Police #neutralised 03 #infiltrators (FTs) near Madiyan Nanak post in #Kamalkote sector of #Uri. More details to be followed.”
