The operation was carried out after the alert soldiers noticed suspicious movement along the LoC in the early hours of the morning.

“The infiltration attempt has been stopped successfully,” an army official confirmed.

The area has been cordoned off and is being sanitised by the army to ensure that there are no other terrorists in hiding.

“Four terrorists were eliminated after an exchange of fire between them and the army. A search operation is being carried out,” the official said.

Rampur sector is close to the Uri sector where the Indian Army on Friday foiled an attack by Pakistan’s Border Action Team or BAT.

The two Pakistani intruders, suspected to be members of a Pak Army Border Action Team (BAT), have been eliminated by the

Indian Army near a post in the Uri sector of Kashmir located at an altitude of more than 10,000 feet. The intruders had crossed the

Line of Control and were very close to an Indian Army post located 600 metres from the LoC.
