Srinagar/UNI: At least three armed infiltrators were killed in a gun battle close to the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district on Thursday, official sources said.

The infiltration bid was foiled in the Kamalkote area of the Uri sector when soldiers noticed suspicious movement close to the LoC.

“The group was challenged and they opened fire, triggering a gun battle. So far, three infiltrators have been killed and arms and ammunition have been recovered from the area,” an official source said.

There has been a spurt in infiltration bids in the last few days. The army has foiled at least three infiltration bids along the LoC in Jammu region in the last four days.
