The Indian Army today said it has foiled an attack on a patrol party in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian Army said that two ‘terrorists’ of Pakistan’s notorious Border Action Team (BAT) were killed in the process.

"Alert troops foiled a BAT attack on our patrol party in Uri sector today. Two BAT terrorists were killed in the operation," an army official said here.

The BAT attack was effectively repulsed, the official said.

According to police sources, the bodies of the two slain militants were lying in "no man's" land along the LoC.

The action comes days after two Indian soldiers were killed and their bodies mutilated by Pakistani troops on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

The attack was carried out by the Border Action Team (BAT), which generally comprises Pakistani army personnel and terrorists, in Krishna Ghati Sector in Poonch district.

More details awaited.
