The Indian Army on Saturday killed five terrorists, foiling an infiltration bid on the Line of Control in the Uri sector of north Kashmir's Baramulla district.

A defence spokesman in Srinagar said alert troops noticed movement along the LoC in the afternoon in the Kalapahar area of the Uri sector and challenged the infiltrators.

"The terrorists opened fire at the troops, which was returned, resulting in an encounter that is still on and so far bodies of five terrorists have been recovered," Lt Col JS Brar said.
