Eight militants killed in Kupwara

Bureau Report

Srinagar: Eight militants and a policeman were killed and three security personnel injured in two separate gunfights as Army on Friday foiled a major infiltration bid in Macchil sector of Kashmir Valley, defence sources said.
The infiltration bid by a group of heavily-armed militants was scuttled at Maidan Behak-Ringmala in Macchil sector near the Line of Control, 125 kms from Srinagar, in Kupwara district of north Kashmir, this morning.
Army troops launched a counter-infiltration operation in the area after getting information about a group of ultras trying to sneak into this side of the LoC, they said.

The militants were challenged by the troops and asked to surrender. However, the ultras opened fire resulting in exchange of fire between the two sides that left five militants dead.

A cache of arms and ammunition was recovered from the spot, the sources said, adding Army troops were sifting through the forests to look for any remnants of the infiltrating column.

In another anti-militancy operation, three militants and a policeman were killed in an encounter in a forest area in Ganderbal district of the Valley, the sources said.

The gunbattle broke out yesterday at Chak-Akhal, 45 kms from here, when security forces launched a search operation to track down hiding militants.
They said three militants were killed in the encounter in which a policeman also laid down his life.

Three other security personnel have been injured since last evening in the operation.

The identity and group affiliation of the slain militants could not be ascertained immediately, they added.

According to army, more than 400 militants are waiting on the other side of LoC in Pakistan-administrated Kashmir (PaK) to infiltrate into the Valley before the onset of the winter.
