Army foiled an infiltration bid by a group of militants along the Line of Control in Poonch district and arrested a Pakistani guide, officials said on Saturday.


During patrolling of the LoC in Kangra gali area in Balakote sector of the district, troops observed movement of militants around 2130 hours last night.

Troops guarding the borderline challenged them and later fired at them, they said, adding there was also firing from across the border which continued for over an hour.

Later, troops caught hold of a Pakistan guide identified as 50-year-old Mohmmad Sagir of Keralay Majan village of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The militants fled towards PoK. A major search operation has been launched in the area this morning and the Pakistani guide was being questioned.
