At least five terrorists were killed on Saturday as Indian security forces foiled yet another infiltration bid in Jammu and Kashmir's Tangdhar sector.
The terrorists were attempting to enter the Indian side in the wee hours of the morning but were spotted and fired upon by Indian forces, new agency ANI reported.
The number of total terrorists involved in the infiltration bid could not be immediately known.
Indian security forces have been keeping a tight vigil along the border with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan has resorted to unprovoked heavy firing in several sectors of the region in the past few days resulting in a number of civilian casualties.
