KUPWARA: Pakistani terrorists were detected near Line of Control (LoC) while trying to infiltrate into India in Kulwara sector of Jammu and Kashmir on July 30, the Indian Army said on Friday, adding that they were forced to retract.

In a video accessed by ANI, at least four terrorists are seen moving in a hilly area.

The terrorists were attempting to infiltrate and carry out attacks on Indian positions. They were forced to return after being detected by the Army, which fired upon them.

On September 18, ANI accessed an Army video in which Pakistani troops or terrorists were clearly seen attempting to carry out BAT action and were immediately eliminated.
