Srinagar, June 8:

Two militants and a soldier were killed on Thursday as the Army foiled two infiltration bids on the Line of Control (LoC) in Naugam and Uri sectors in Kashmir Valley.

“Two terrorists were killed and an Army soldier martyred in Naugam sector of the LoC in Kupwara district when a group of terrorists tried to infiltrate into our side from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir,” a Defence Ministry source said.

“In another infiltration bid, the terrorists tried to cross over in Uri sector of Baramulla district. They were challenged. In the ensuing firing exchanges, two soldiers have been injured,” the official said.

Infiltration bids at both places have been foiled, but the operations are still ongoing, the official added.
