On Wednesday, the Indian security forces in the Machhal sector successfully prevented an infiltration attempt by terrorists, neutralizing two of them. The troops were alerted to the possibility of infiltration based on specific intelligence provided by the SSP Kupwara, and a well-coordinated counter-infiltration strategy was implemented.
Additional ambushes were placed along likely infiltration routes, and troops braved adverse weather conditions for two nights. The terrorists were encountered by the troops early on May 3, and a fierce gun battle ensued, resulting in the elimination of two terrorists. The security forces recovered two AK series rifles, magazines, and many warlike stores.
The identity of the terrorists and their affiliated groups is being investigated. This successful operation is a testament to the collaboration between the Indian Army, JKP, and all agencies to defeat the malicious intentions of those who seek to disturb the peace and harmony of the area.
