Indian troops on Sunday gunned down two terrorists who sneaked into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan, the military said.
The two men were killed in Kupwara district on the Line of Control (LoC), which divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan, army spokesman Lt Col JS Brar told IANS here.
"The terrorists were killed in Keran sector," he said, adding that his men had foiled another infiltration bid by the terrorists from Pakistan.
He said the identity of the guerrillas had not been established and further searches were on in the area.
Eight guerrillas were killed by the army in the same sector late last month in a fierce gunfight that raged for three days.
With intelligence inputs suggesting that around 400 guerrillas had been waiting to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir this summer, security forces have been put on maximum alert.
The army has launched Operation 'Khoj' in Rajouri district of Jammu region where 14 guerrillas were recently killed in different gunfights.
