Jammu: An infiltration bid by guerrillas on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir has been foiled, police said on Thursday.
Police sources told IANS here that a group of six to eight heavily armed militants tried to sneak into the Indian side of the Line of Control (LoC) in Tarkundi area of Poonch district late on Wednesday.
"Alert troops opened fire at the intruding militants, forcing them to flee back into the Pakistan side. The firing continued for over half an hour," a police source said. Searches are on in the area, the source added.
