Jammu: Two infiltrating militants were killed on Wednesday on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district as the army foiled an infiltration bid, said defence sources.
 
A group of heavily-armed militants was challenged by alert troops on the Indian side of the LoC Wednesday morning, but opened fire instead, triggering a gunfight in which two of the intruders were killed, said the sources.
 
 
“The infiltration bid has been foiled,” said a source.
 
Reports from the area said Pakistan Army had provided covering fire to facilitate the infiltration.
