The gun-battle started after the army intercepted a heavily armed group of infiltrators near the Line of Control in north Kashmir's Nowgam sector yesterday. In the adjacent area of Badi Bahak of Bangus Valley, security forces foiled another infiltration attempt and shot two terrorists dead in a gun-battle yesterday.
