Army denies report of Pakistan Army presence in Indian village
New Delhi: The Army on Wednesday said it foiled an infiltration bid by Pakistan-backed terrorists in the Keran sector on the Line of Control (LoC) last week and search operations were going on there.
"An infiltration bid was attempted last week by terrorists which was foiled by the Army. The search operations are still on," the Army headquarters said here.
The response was given by the Army after reports suggested that Pakistani troops had occupied an uninhabited village named Shala Bhat in Keran sector on the LoC inside the Indian territory and a gunbattle was on to drive them away.
The Army headquarters termed the reports as "totally incorrect".
In the recent past, there have been several actions by the Pakistani Border Action Team on the LoC including the January incident in which two Indian soldiers were killed, including beheading of one of them, and the August incident killing Army men.
