Infiltration bid foiled; militant killed in Tanghdar

India Army soldiers burn bushes near an international border fencing to make sure no infiltrator is left there, after a landmine explosion, at Ballad post in Samba, nearly 45 kilometers southwest of Jammu on Monday.AP

Troops guarding the Line of Control in Tangdhar, 145 kms from here, noticed some heavily-armed militants sneaking in to the Indian side and asked them to surrender, a defence spokesman said.

However, they opened fire and in the retaliatory action, one militant was killed while another was arrested.

This is the third infiltration attempt by militants from across the border in as many days. Six militants and two army jawans were killed in the two previous incidents.
