Infiltration bid foiled in Akhnoor, 1 killed | India News


JAMMU: The Army said Saturday that an infiltration bid from Pakistan was foiled along the border in the Akhnoor area of Jammu and that terrorists were seen “dragging one body back”.
The abortive attempt was mounted at a time when massive search operations were on to flush out the terrorists who ambushed and killed four soldiers two days ago in Poonch, around 200km away.
According to the army’s White Knight Corps, four terrorists were caught in surveillance equipment trying to sneak in late Friday night in Akhnoor. “Infiltration bid foiled in IB sector of Khour, Akhnoor. Effective fire brought down (terrorists),” White Knight Corps posted on X.
At least four such infiltration bids have been thwarted in the Poonch-Rajouri region since late May this year, leading to deaths or capture of intruders. They included one on May 31 when three terrorists were caught in Poonch with a huge cache of arms, explosives and suspected heroin worth over Rs 100 crore.
