Army on Sunday claimed to have killed at least five militants near Line of Control in Keran sector in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
Army’s Srinagar based spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia in a statement said, “In an ongoing anti-infiltration operation in Keran Sector of North Kashmir, alert troops braving inclement weather and hostile terrain have so far eliminated five militants attempting to infiltrate across the LC taking advantage of bad weather.”
“In this operation, one soldier has been martyred and two more are critically injured. Evacuation of the injured is hampered due to heavy snow and rough terrain conditions,” said the spokesman.
He said that operation is still in progress.
