Srinagar June 7: Army on Sunday claimed to have foiled an infiltration bid in Naugam sector.
An army statement issued to Kashmir Despatch says that on the night of 3rd Jun 2020, a patrol of the Indian Army along the Line of Control in Naugam sector of North Kashmir spotted a group of Pakistani militants trying to infiltrate into Indian Territory.
“On being challenged, the infiltrators retrieved back under the cover of darkness and inclement weather.
In a hurry, the infiltrators left behind their rucksacks with winter clothing, batteries and other equipment to be used for their attempted crossing of the fence.
Repeated attempts of infiltration in North Kashmir continue to be foiled by the alert and watchful Army units based on sound intelligence, thus blunting the nefarious designs of Pakistan to foment trouble in the Valley,” the statement said.
