The Army on May 13 said an infiltration bid was foiled and the infiltrators were engaged in a gunfight near the Line of Control (LoC) in north Kashmir’s Baramulla.
“Infiltration bid by militants foiled in the Uri Sector of Baramulla. There was an exchange of fire between militants and own troops,” the Army said.
“There are no reports of any casualties so far. The operation is on in the area to trace any infiltrator who managed to sneak in,” officials said.
The Army said the Pakistan side tried to fly a quadcopter over the incident site. ”On being fired at by the Indian side, it quickly withdrew,” the Army said.
The infiltration bid was a desperate action by the intruders, duly abetted by Pakistan army. “It is yet another failed attempt to disrupt the G20 Summit and create disturbance in the Valley,” the Army said.
Extensive search operations are underway in the densely forested area, he added.
