The Indian Army has captured a Pakistan infiltrator in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir and killed another. Army sources have said that the captured terrorist is an 18-year-old affiliated with the Lashkar. The Pakistani terrorist who has been captured was part of a recent infiltration bid that was going on since September 18-19, said the sources.
Pakistani terrorist held by Indian Army identified as Ali Babar of Okara district of Punjab province and is member of LeT and took 03 months terrorist training. Ali Babar Patra who had crossed LoC to carry out Uri attack started crying & requested not to kill him when his associate was shot dead on 25th Sept evening.
Another Pakistani guide, Qari Anaz (33) was killed by the forces on September 26 when he opened fire at the Army search team. The forces have recovered one AK-47 rifle, two grenades, and one communication set from the captured terror operative.
Sources have said that the Army was able to establish contact with infiltrators at three different locations in the last two days. One Pakistan infiltrator is believed to be dead in the encounter so far while the Army is looking for the others.
Four soldiers have sustained bullet injuries during an exchange of fire between the Army and militants in the Uri sector along the Line of Control (LoC). The Army launched a counter-infiltration operation along the LoC in the Uri sector on Saturday after noticing suspicious movement.
“Four soldiers were injured in the exchange of firing with infiltrators from across the LoC in Uri,” officials said. The infiltrators were challenged by the Indian Army soldiers, leading to a gunfight, they said.
The officials said four soldiers were injured in the exchange of firing between the two sides over the past two days. Last week, the Army foiled an infiltration bid near the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district, killing three terrorists and recovering a large cache of arms and ammunition.
