Army on Tuesday foiled yet another infiltration bid from across the border by killing a militant and arresting another in Tanghdar sector of Kupwara district.

Troops guarding the Line of Control in Tangdhar, 145 kms from Srinagar, noticed some heavily-armed militants sneaking in to the Indian side and asked them to surrender, a defence spokesman said.

However, they opened fire and in the retaliatory action, one militant was killed while another was arrested.

This is the third infiltration attempt by militants from across the border in as many days. Six militants and two army jawans were killed in the two previous incidents.
