Jammu: Security agencies foiled an attempt of Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) on Sunday evening. Three jawans were injured in the incident.

At 1725 hours, security forces observed suspicious movement was close to an Indian post, 100 metres towards the Line of Control (LoC).

The BAT team opened fire on the post. One Rocket-propelled grenade or RPG was also fired towards the post.

Three jawans sustained minor injuries and have been admitted to the hospital, said news agency ANI. 

The body of a heavily-armed Pakistani intruder was later recovered. Four RPGs were also recovered.
