Infiltration bid foiled at Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir; 2 terrorists killed
Srinagar: Two terrorists were killed in Gujjartur in Jammu and Kashmir as the army foiled another infiltration bid from across the border today. The operation took place west of Shala Batu village in Keran sector in the Kashmir Valley where the army has been involved in an encounter with militants for the last 11 days.

Sources say the army's encounter has reached its final stages. More than 1300 Gurkha Rifles jawans have restricted the terrorists restricted to an area of around one square km. The army says at least a dozen remaining terrorists may have dug into abandoned houses and cave-like features in the area.

The army says five of its soldiers have been injured and 12 intruders have been killed, though none of their bodies have been found.

The Pakistan army has denied any links with the incident; the Indian army has said that Pakistan's Border Action Team may be involved.
