The Army foiled an infiltration bid on the Line of Control in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday night.
After a brief exchange of fire, the infiltrators retreated.
“The troops deployed on the LoC in the Jhangar Sector observed suspicious movement of three persons around 2300 hours,” a defence spokesman said here on Saturday. As they moved closer, the troops challenged them, leading to a brief exchange of fire. “They went into hiding and opened a burst of small arms fire, probably from an AK-series weapon,” he said. The troops retaliated. — PTI
