Jammu (NVI): A terrorist was killed while two others were seriously injured by the Indian Army while foiling an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district, a senior defence official said today.

The incident took place on Friday when a group of terrorists was attempting to infiltrate across LoC in Krishna Ghati Sector, said defence spokesperson in Jammu, Lt Colonel Devendra Anand.

“The alert Indian Army troops detected the terrorists close to LoC and immediately engaged them resulting in on the spot killing of one terrorist and seroius injuries to other two,” he said.

A subsequent search in the area showed that the dead body of terrorist had been dragged away from the incident site, he added.

“One AK 47 rifle, two AK 47 magazines and some eatables were recovered from the incident site. Pakistan markings on the eatables and a few other items clearly indicate the complicity of Pakistan in sponsoring terror activities in J&K.” he said.

Meanwhile, security forces are maintaining a robust counter-infiltration grid along the LoC to foil any such infiltration bids by Pakistan.
