Army on Saturday gunned down three heavily-armed terrorists and foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu & Kashmir’s Poonch district.
The group of terrorists was attempting to infiltrate into the Indian Territory from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), a defence spokesman said here. The troops spotted and traced their movement in Saujian area of Poonch and kept tightening cordon around them, leaving no escape route, he added.
A massive search operation was on for 36 hours which led to exchange of fire resulting in all the three terrorists being killed, he said. Spokesman described it as a “flawless surgical operation” executed by army ensuring neutralization of all the terrorists and no casualty
