Srinagar: Army personnel today eliminated one
more militant in the gunbattle near the Line of Control in
Jammu and Kashmir`s Kupwara district, taking the number of
slain ultras to five.

"One more militant was killed in the gunbattle at Keran
sector. We have recovered the body of the slain militant," an
army spokesman said.

There were no casualties among the security forces, he
added.
Earlier, four militants were killed as army troops foiled
an infiltration bid near the LoC in Keran sector of the
district.

The troops had foiled the infiltration bid by militants
from across the Line of Control in Keran sector on Friday.
Over the past three months, militants have stepped up
infiltration bids as they try to augment the depleting cadres
following the killing of several top commanders of
Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad.
