Troops in Jammu and Kashmir on early Thursday killed a terrorist while foiling an infiltration bid near the Line of Control (LoC) that divides the state between India and Pakistan, an army spokesperson said in Jammu.

Security personnel noticed some movement near the LoC in Kang area of the border district of Rajouri at 4.30 am and "challenged them", said Col Dinesh Kumar Badola, 16 Corps spokesperson.

While one man was shot dead, troops were searching the area to find the others, he added.

The trend indicates that militants are trying to step up infiltration from Pakistan before winter sets in and snow closes the mountain passes.
