A soldier was killed by militants as Army foiled an infiltration bid near the Line of Control (LoC) in Kupwara district of north Kashmir, an army official said here today.

“Terrorists attempting to infiltrate (from Pakistan- occupied Kashmir) were intercepted by alert troops in the intervening night of July 22-23 which led to exchange of fire and forced the infiltrators to flee.

“In the gunbattle, one soldier sustained injuries and unfortunately later succumbed,” the official said.

He said a search operation was launched soon after the encounter.
