SRINAGAR - Three terrorists from across the border were Saturday killed in a gunbattle with the army that continues to rage in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district, an official said.
Three infiltrating terrorists have been killed so far in Uri sector of the Line of Control (LoC) in Baramulla,” Lieutenant Colonel J.S. Brar, spokesman of the army’s Srinagar-based 15th corps, told IANS here.
Alert troops of the army spotted a group of heavily armed terrorists in Uri sector Saturday morning. They were challenged to surrender upon which they opened indiscriminate firing at the surrounding troops. This triggered a gunfight which is still on in the area, Brar said.
