Army foiled an infiltration bid Tuesday morning by killing a militant in Kupwara district of North Kashmir.
Troops noticed some suspicious movement in Tangdhar, 170 kms from Srinagar, and challenged a group of militants who were trying to infiltrate, a defence spokesman said.
They were asked to surrender but they opened fire. In retaliatory action, a militant was killed. The operation in the area was still going on when last reports came in.
