Uri: The Indian Army foiled an infiltration bid by terrorists across the Line of Control in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir early on Friday. As per the reports, there was an exchange of fire between the security troops and terrorists. The Pakistan side tried to fly a quadcopter over the incident site but on being fired at by the Indian side it quickly withdrew.
“There has been an infiltration bid in Uri Sect today early morning. The same has been successfully foiled by our alert troops. Search is presently in progress for any recoveries,” the officials said.
“An infiltration bid by terrorists across the Line of Control in Uri Sector of Jammu and Kashmir was foiled by the Indian Army during early morning hours today. A group of armed terrorists, while attempting to cross the Line of Control, were engaged in an exchange of fire with the alert troops resulting in a failed attempt to intrude into Kashmir Valley. A quadcopter flown by the Pakistan Army to aid the terrorists was also spotted across the Line of Control, and was fired at, causing it to withdraw,” the Army said.

Meanwhile, in the exchange of fire between terrorists and troops, one JCO sustained minor bullet injuries on his hand and calf.
“Post the firing, Pak side tried to fly a Quadcopter as well over the incident site but on being fired at from own side quickly withdrew. The Quadcopter issue definitely brings to fore the complicity between the terrorists and the Pakistan Army in providing due assistance during acts of infiltration,” it added.
The bid was foiled at a time when security apparatus is on high alert as Srinagar is hosting the G20 meeting scheduled later this month.
“This desperate action by the terrorists, duly abetted by Pakistan Army, is yet another failed attempt to disrupt the G20 Summit and create disturbance in the Valley. Extensive search operations are underway in the densely forested area,” it added.
