Two terrorists were killed on September 26 when the Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir Police stopped a similar infiltration attempt in Kupwara. The militants who were killed in a gun battle with security officers were found with pistols and grenades.

The latest bid was foiled a day after J&K Director General of Police, Dilbag Singh said that Pakistan was trying to push in as many terrorists from across with the onset of winter.

“Our border grid is very strong to foil their evil attempts,” Singh said on Sunday.

The DGP said in recent past infiltration attempts were foiled in Rajouri-Poonch, Kupwara-Baramulla areas.
