“Four militants killed during an infiltration bid in Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir,” an Army statement said on Monday.

The infiltration bid came a day after violent clashes killed eight people during the bypolls in Srinagar, and led to an extremely low turnout of 6.5 per cent – the lowest in 27 years.

On Sunday, militants had fired upon a police station in Kulgam district but fled after cops retaliated.
