“BAT action against Indian army patrol along the LoC in Uri sector foiled. Two BAT terrorists killed. Operation continues,” said army’s Srinagar-based spokesman Rajesh Kalia.

The bodies of the two militants and weapons were recovered.

Notorious for gruesome attacks across the de facto border between India and Pakistan, the Border Action Team had beheaded two Indian soldiers in May. The Pakistan army’s elite special services group forms the core of BAT. Its primary task is to dominate the LoC by carrying out disruptive actions in the form of surreptitious raids.
