“The jawans retaliated and almost all the militants were killed in the encounter,” said Vij. “We haven’t recovered any bodies so far,” he added.
The army also released a statement saying five militants had been killed. However, according to unconfirmed reports, three of the infiltrators crossed back to the Pakistani side of the LoC.
This is the second major infiltration bid since June 1, 2013, when in an encounter in the Nowgam sector of north Kashmir, two militants were killed. Two others had fled back to the Pakistani side.
