The Indian Army on Tuesday shot dead one heavily armed Intruder who was trying to infiltrate into the Indian territory in the Akhnoor sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu.

A senior Army official, while confirming the killing of the suspected terrorist, told MyNation that this morning, jawans deployed along the LoC noticed some suspicious movement and challenge the Intruder. The infiltrator tried to take cover in the forest area but was shot dead by the alert jawans.

The body of the Intruder with one AK 47 rifle, a pistol, grenades and other ammunition, has been recovered. The body of terrorists is likely to be handed over to the police shortly.

The identity of the killed terrorist has not been ascertained yet. Sources suggest that the terrorist shot dead was a resident of the Hamirpur area of Punjab in Pakistan.
