Army on Thursday foiled an infiltration bid along the LoC in Poonch sector, where one militant is believed to have been killed.

A group of four-five armed militants tried to infiltrate into the Indian side of the border along LoC in Krishnagati forward area and their movement was picked by surveillance devices and troops guarding the border, an army officer said.

Troops guarding the borderline fired at the infiltrating militants, who fired back resulting in exchanges, he said.

After the brief exchange of firing, militants tried to escape back, he said, adding that a body is lying close to the border line.

Search operations have been launched in the area.
