Three militants have been killed by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir as the forces foiled an infiltration bid in Machhil sector on Wednesday, 6 June. A search operation is underway.
Troops noticed suspicious movement along the LoC in Macchil sector in Kupwara district and challenged the infiltrators, an Army officer was reported as saying. This came after Tuesday night when terrorists opened fire in Hajin in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district.
Reports said that 4-6 terrorists approached the 13 Rashtriya Rifles camp and lauched a grenade attack. Security forces retaliated “heavily and effectively”, a senior police officer said. The possibility of it being a suicide attack has been ruled out.
The area has been closed off and combing operations have been started, the officer said.
