Infiltration bid foiled along LoC, JCO killed

SRINAGAR (TIP): A Junior Commissioned Officer was killed while a soldier was injured as Army on Saturday foiled an infiltration bid by militants in Macchil sector along the Line of Control in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district. Troops of 56 Rashtriya Rifles noticed some suspicious movement of two to four persons along the LoC in Macchil sector at around 3.00am and challenged them, an Army spokesman said. The militants, who were trying to sneak into the Valley from Pakistan occupied Kashmir, opened fire on the army positions including on Dingeri Post, which was retaliated. In the ensuing gunfight, a JCO identified as Arun Kumar was killed while a soldier Solanki Raju was injured. The militants fled in view of the stiff challenge posed by the army troops, the spokesman said.
