At least three militants were killed on Sunday, as soldiers foiled infiltration bid in Tangdhar sector of Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
The militants were involved in attack on August 19, in which 3 BSF personnel were injured.
The Indian Army’s 4 Para commandos retaliated to the fire by the militants, who were trapped during the encounter.
The entire area has been cordoned off.
In June, the Army foiled an infiltration bid by killing two militants in Tangdhar sector near the Line of Control.
It was the second such infiltration bid foiled by the security forces along the LoC in Kashmir in three days.
