J&K: One terrorist captured alive, another killed as Army foils infiltration bid in Uri sector

Army today said that more than a week long operation against the infiltrators along the Line of Control in Uri Sector of North Kashmir’s Baramulla district, ended with the killing of an infiltrator and capturing one alive.

The GoC, 19 Infantry Division, Virendra Vats told media in Uri today afternoon that military operation started on 18th September night when a search party observed the movement of infiltrators on LoC. He said the infiltrators were 6 in number.

Four among them took advantage of darkness and returned to Pakistan after a firefight while two were holed up in a nallah. He said during the firefight, one infiltrator was killed while another was captured alive. Lietenant General Vats further said that the terrorist who has been captured has revealed that he is affiliated with Lashkar-e-Taiba.

The captured terrorist revealed that he was instructed to drop the supply in Pattan area. After analyzing the facts, it seems the intention of these infiltrators was to strike somewhere in Kashmir. He said a similar attempt was made in the nearby area in the same sector a few days back inwhich three inflitrators  were killed.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gen said that a large haul of arms and ammunition was recovered from the area. He said that such a large group could not have made movements without being noticed by the Pakistan army and added that movements were spotted in Launch pads also across LoC from last several days by Indian Army.
