"Three terrorists were killed in the resulting encounter," Colonel Rajesh Kalia, spokesman of the Indian Army's Srinagar-headquartered 15 Corps confirmed to news agency.

Search Operation was carried out in which these terrorists were killed in a gunfight that erupted after they attacked a counter-insurgency Rashtriya Rifles (RR) camp in north Kashmir's Kupwara district.

"Heavily armed terrorists dressed in army fatigues attacked the 30 RR camp situated in Langate town of Kupwara district at 5.10 a.m. today (Thursday)," said Rajesh Kalia.

The alert guards at the 30 RR camp in Langate located close to a civilian facility foiled the terrorists' attempt to enter the camp by breaching its security periphery," he said.

"The terrorist firing stopped for some time, but it started again at 6.30 a.m," he added.

"We have recovered three AK-47 rifles from the slain terrorists. Firing has stopped, but the search operation is still going on," the army spokesman said.

No casualty or injury was suffered by the RR troops. On October 3 a BSF trooper was killed and another injured when terrorists attacked the camp of 47 RR in Janbazpora area of Baramulla town.

Indian Army Foils 3 Infiltration Bids By Pakistan-Based Terrorists
Since the surgical strikes, there has been a rise in infiltration bids from Pakistan. The number of terrorist attacks and ceasefire violations have also gone up. Indian Army on Thursday foiled three infiltration bids by terrorists assisted by Pakistani Army along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan took the cowardly stance by taking support of terror groups to retaliate the significant casualties caused in surgical strikes so that they can’t be blamed openly.

"Three infiltration bids were foiled in two separate sectors on the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir on the intervening night of October 5-6," an Army official said.

He said while two infiltration bids were foiled in Naugam sector, one such attempt was foiled in Rampur sector.

"The infiltration attempts were assisted by Pakistani posts," the official added.
