The Indian Army Friday said it foiled an infiltration bid and killed four infiltrators in north Kashmir's Kupwara district.

Defence spokesman Lt. Col. J.S. Brar said in a statement: "An infiltration bid was foiled by alert security forces on the Line of Control (LOC) in Keran Sector, near Hanuman Top, where terrorists who were trying to sneak into Indian territory at 1:30 a.m. Friday with huge quantity of arms to target innocent civilians and security forces were killed."

"During this operation, four heavily armed terrorists were killed and a huge quantity of war-like stores were recovered, which included five AK-47 rifles," the spokesman said.

"This is a desperate attempt to ensure maximum infiltration by the other side, before the traditional routes of infiltration close due to snow. The Indian Army will ensure that none of these efforts succeed," the spokesman said.
