Security Forces Kill Four Jaish-e Mohammad Militants In Kashmir's Uri Foil Infiltration Bid

Indian Army foiled infiltration bid by killing six terrorists along LoC in Uri sector of north Kashmir's Baramulla district on Monday.

Four suicidal JeM terrorists killed in Dulanja Uri while infiltrating in a joint operation by @JmuKmrPolice / Army / CAPF, said Jammu & Kashmir DGP Shesh Paul Vaid in a tweet.

Five bodies of the terrorists have been recovered from the encounter site, while a search is on to find the sixth one.

The operation is still in progess.


At least four militants who had infiltrated into Kashmir were killed in an overnight operation, police said.

The infiltrating militants opened fire at the forces, ensuing into a fierce gun battle that left five militants dead, Col Kalia said. Later, Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) had claimed responsibility for carrying out the attack on the 185 Battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).

They said that the search for the fourth militants is underway.

In wake of the approaching Republic Day celebrations security has been beefed up in the region. The army's quick retaliation, say sources, indicate a new, proactive approach in the face of incessant Pakistani provocation.
