Army foils infiltration bid in Poonch, recovers items with ‘Pak markings’

JAMMU: Indian troops on Thursday night foiled an infiltration bid by a group of heavily-armed Pakistani terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC) in J&K’s Poonch district. While the terrorists managed to escape towards Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, a subsequent search of the area led security forces to find assorted items with “markings” indicating they were made in Pakistan.
On August 30, the Army had shot dead two terrorists while they were trying to clandestinely enter India.
On detecting the infiltration attempt by the ultras late Thursday, the Indian soldiers manning the LoC challenged the suspects and a fierce gunfight ensued. “They took advantage of the darkness owing to undulating terrain and heavy undergrowth and managed to flee towards PoK,” Jammu-based defence spokesperson Lt Col Devender Anand said.
“The troops carried out a thorough search of the encounter site and recovered an assortment of administrative stores left behind by the terrorists, including clothing, packaged food items and medicines with Pakistani markings,” Lt Col Anand added.
