The Jaish-e-Mohammad militants were killed at Dalunja area.

Security forces killed at least five militants trying to cross the Line of Control into Kashmir Valley in Uri Sector on Monday. 

According to an Army spokesperson, five militants have been killed so far in Uri as the operation continues.

DGP Vaid said the group belonged to Jaish-e-Muhammad. "The suicidal group was jointly killed in an operation by the police, army and CRPF," he said.
