Four militants were killed in a fierce encounter as the Army successfully foiled an infiltration bid in Naugam sector of the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, Press Trust of India reported on Sunday. The operation which started on Saturday lasted for more than 24 hours. Three army personnel have also been reported martyred in the attack, ANI reported. “An infiltration bid was foiled by alert troops along the LoC in Nowgam sector. Two infiltrating terrorists were killed,” an army official told PTI on Saturday. The officer also told PTI that two soldiers (number has risen to three now) attained martyrdom in the operation.

The encounter comes amid heightened tensions between India and Pakistan. Recently, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said that terrorism from across the border is aimed against India and its sovereignty. “Terrorism and militancy is aimed against Indian state, it’s sovereignty and also against people of J&K,” he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. He added that separatists are being funded from across the border, he had said, “It was known they (separatists) were being funded from across the border. Concerned agencies will take whatever action is needed.”

Pakistan once again violated ceasefire in Balakot sector, an incident which took place on Wednesday, an ANI report said. The report added that the neighbouring country had resorted to shelling and firing for the fourth consecutive day on forward posts and civilian areas along the LoC in Rajouri district even as nearly 1,700 people were evacuated from shelling-hit areas – this was earlier in the month. A sharp increase in Pakistan-backed firing and overnight shelling along the LoC has been witnessed. A Press Trust of India report said that firing and shelling has affected over 10,000 people.

    Crust of the matter is that India calls Kashmir as their own when its not actually. Kashmir is rightfully for Kashmiris ONLY and its them who can decide its future. Futile efforts of trying to make Kashmir yours are never ever going to succeed.
