Naugam: Security forces on Saturday (July 11) killed at least two terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Naugam sector of Baramulla in Jammu and Kashmir. An Army spokesperson said the suspicious movement was detected by troops along the LoC at the wee hours of Saturday. 'The forces swiftly launched an ambush, resulting in the elimination of two terrorists. A huge cache of arms and warlike stores were recovered,' the spokesperson said. Reports stated that a group of terrorists while trying to sneak into this part of the LoC, were challenged by alert forces. However, they began firing on the Army, thus triggering an encounter. During the gunfight, two terrorists were killed. The forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to find out the presence of more terrorists, if any, in the area. The Army later said that the cache of arms recovered comprises 2xAK-47 rifles & 1x Pistol with magazines, ammunition, 04 x grenades & medical supplies. Recoveries include Pakistani currency and medicines. According to an Army officer, Pakistan is continuously trying to push terrorists into this side of the border. Till July this year, the forces have successfully neutralised hundreds of Pakistan-sponsored terrorists in the Kashmir Valley.
