J&K: 5 LeT Ultras Gunned Down In Kupwara; BSF Responds Befittingly To Unprovoked Firing By Pakistan Rangers

Security forces successfully thwarted an infiltration attempt by five Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorists across the Line of Control in Kupwara district on Thursday. Simultaneously, they responded resolutely to unprovoked firing initiated by Pakistan Rangers along the International Border in Jammu, as confirmed by officials.

The ceasefire violation in the Arnia sector occurred shortly after a joint operation conducted by the police and army along the Line of Control in the Machhil sector of Kupwara.

A senior BSF official reported that the Pakistan Rangers initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts at approximately 8 pm, prompting Indian troops to retaliate in a fitting manner. Senior BSF officers rushed to the scene to assess the situation, according to officials.

In the Machhil sector operation, security forces successfully foiled an infiltration attempt by five LeT terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC). The operation resulted in the elimination of the terrorists, and a significant cache of arms and ammunition, including five AK series rifles and other incriminating materials, was recovered from the site.

Vijay Kumar, the Additional Director General of Police for Kashmir, confirmed that five terrorists were killed in the operation. The operation was launched based on intelligence input from Kupwara Police and involved a coordinated effort by the police and army along the Line of Control in the Machhil sector.

Joint team observed movement of terrorists in dense forests along LoC

According to a police spokesperson, the operation was executed swiftly, and the joint team managed to neutralize the terrorists. The joint team observed the movement of terrorists in the dense forests along the LoC, and after engaging in a fierce firefight, they successfully eliminated the five unidentified terrorists associated with the proscribed terror outfit LeT.

The identity of the slain terrorists is currently being ascertained, and all the recovered materials are being documented for further investigation. A case has been registered by the police, and extensive search efforts in the area are ongoing.

While officials have noted a significant decrease in infiltration attempts, terrorists' efforts to infiltrate Indian territory have persisted throughout the year. Just four days ago, two terrorists were killed in an unsuccessful infiltration bid in the Uri sector, and in June, a total of 11 infiltrators were shot dead, with four in the Macchil sector and five in the nearby Jumagund area of the Keran sector.
