Srinagar: Five militants and three soldiers were killed as the Army foiled an infiltration bid by terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district, a defence spokesperson said on Sunday.

“In an ongoing anti-infiltration operation in Keran sector of north Kashmir, alert troops braving inclement weather and hostile terrain have so far eliminated five terrorists attempting to infiltrate across the LoC,” Colonel Rajesh Kalia said.

During the operation, a soldier died while two were critically injured, he said.

Despite inclement weather, the two injured were evacuated, but they succumbed to their injuries, the spokesperson said.

“Evacuation of the injured is hampered due to heavy snow and rough terrain conditions,” he said, adding the operation was still in progress.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
