Srinagar: Two unidentified terrorists were killed on Wednesday as security forces foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector of north Kashmir, officials said.

The troops noticed some movement near the LoC. An exchange of fire ensued between the two sides as the security forces challenged the intruders, they said.

“Two intruders have been killed so far in the operation, which was going on till the last reports came in,” they said.

While officials maintain that infiltration attempts have come down significantly, attempts by terrorists to sneak into Indian territory have continued this year.

Five terrorists were neutralised along the LoC in Macchil sector of Kupwara district on October 26 and two were killed in a failed infiltration bid in Uri sector of Baramulla district on October 22.

A total of 11 infiltrators were shot dead in June, including four in Macchil sector and five in the nearby Jumagund area of Keran sector.
