Srinagar: On Independence Day morning, Army troops noticed movement along the line of control in Naushera Sector. On being challenged, the armed intruders opened fire on own troops. Our troops responded with retaliatory fire in equal measure.
Pakistan Army posts provided supporting and covering fire, with a view to cover the move and help in extrication of the armed intruders. In this ensuing firefight, one army personnel sustained injuries and was evacuated for further medical treatment. His condition is stated to be stable.
Search and sanitization operations are continuing till the last reports came in. Pakistan continues in its nefarious designs of supporting and abetting infiltration across the LOC. It is clear that Pakistan has never been interested to bring about peace & stability in J & K. They have been vitiating the atmosphere both along LC & Hinterland.
The White Knight Corps is keeping a strict and constant vigil across the LOC and all the security force are prepared to thwart any nefarious designs of Pakistan sponsored terrorists.
