Soldiers killed in Kashmir

Jammu and Kashmir: 2 militants, 2 soldiers killed in thwarted infiltration bid in Nowgam, says Army

An army officer posted at the Nowgam base camp said that the search operation is still on and the army believes that some more militants are alive in the area.

A two-day gun battle left four insurgents and three Indian soldiers dead close to a cease-fire line dividing troubled Kashmir between longtime rivals India and Pakistan, India's army said Sunday.

Officials said the Army engaged a group of infiltrators near Naugam sector in Kupwara district and gunned down two terrorists in the ensuing gunbattle. In the initial gunfight, two militants and two soldiers were killed while the operation remained suspended during the night.

"An infiltration bid was foiled by alert troops along the LoC in Naugam sector".

An official said that four weapons and other war-like stores had been recovered from the encounter site.


Sources told Mirror that after the operation was resumed, the terrorists who were hiding started firing in which one soldier died.

The operation had begun on Saturday after militants tried to infiltrate from across the LOC.

Indian and Pakistani soldiers have in recent weeks clashed along many areas of the Line of Control, the de-facto border dividing Kashmir between the two countries, leading to deaths of soldiers and civilians on both sides.

He said that Armed Forces were fully prepared to deal with the militants coming from across the Valley.

Meanwhile, J&K deputy Chief Minister, Nirmal Singh expressed anguish over the death of Army soldiers while foiling infiltration bid along the LoC.
