Srinagar, Aug 06: A foreign terrorist was killed after a  joint party of security forces foiled a major infiltration bid along Amrohi area Line of Control (LoC) in Tangdhar Sector of north Kashmir's Kupwara district, officials said.
A police official said in a joint operation, Army (6-JAK RIF) and Kupwara Police successfully foiled an infiltration bid by neutralising a terrorist along the LoC in Amrohi area of Tangdhar Sector. “In the early hours, based on an input about possible attempts of infiltration, a joint cordon and search operation was launched by J&K Police and  Army in Dakhen Amrohi area of Tangdhar Sector Kupwara near Zero Line LoC,” he said. The official said that during the search operation, movement of terrorists was observed who were trying to infiltrate to this territory. They were challenged by the joint party in which one terrorist was neutralised, he said.
“Taking advantage of the thick bushes and rugged terrain two to three other terrorists accompanying the killed terrorist escaped back to the Pakistan side of LoC. From the incriminating materials recovered from the site of encounter it is believed that the killed terrorist is a Pakistani national,” the official said.
He said the joint team also recovered arms and ammunition including one AK rifle, one AK magazine, 15 AK rounds, five 9mm Pistols, one 15mm pistol, eight  pistol magazines, 32 9mm pistol rounds and nine 15mm pistol rounds from the site of encounter. “The recovery of these materials underscores the nefarious intentions of the infiltrators and their attempts to disrupt peace and stability in the region,” he said. Accordingly, a case under relevant sections of law has been registered and investigation is in progress. Earlier on July 19, a joint party of security forces killed two foreign terrorists and foiled a major infiltration bid along LoC in Machil sector of north Kashmir's Kupwara district.
