Indian army says it killed 5 militants in Kashmir
The Indian army said it gunned down five militants and foiled an infiltration bid near the border line that divides Kashmir between the nation and Pakistan.
Troops thwarted the bid Thursday after they saw six militants trying to enter near Uri area in north Kashmir, military officials said.
"On being asked to surrender, the infiltrators opened heavy fire on our troops," said Lt Col. J. S. Brar, a defense spokesman. "The troops retaliated resulting in the killing of five terrorists."
