Srinagar: An infiltration bid of militants near the Line of Control was foiled in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector, defence officials said on Saturday.

There is no report of any causality so far.

They said the bid was foiled by alert troops early morning in Uri sector of Baramulla district.

“There was an exchange of fire between terrorists and own troops. 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,” officials said.

“The Quadcopter issue definitely brings to fore the complicity between the terrorists and the Pak Army in providing due assistance during acts of infiltration,” they added.

The bid was foiled at a time when security apparatus is on a high alert across J&K as Srinagar is hosting the G20 meeting scheduled later this month.
