Srinagar- A desperate attempt by militants to disrupt the G20 event in Kashmir has been thwarted, a defence spokesperson said here, referring to an operation in Uri that foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday morning.
The militants attempted to infiltrate into the Uri sector of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district but alert soldiers engaged them, leading to an exchange of fire, Srinagar-based PRO Defence Col Emron Musavi said.
The spokesperson said a quadcopter being flown by the Pakistani Army to aid the terrorists was also spotted across the LoC and fired at, following which it withdrew.
“This desperate action by the terrorists, duly abetted by the Pakistan Army, is yet another failed attempt to disrupt the G20 Summit and create disturbance in the Valley,” the official said.
“Extensive search operations are underway in the densely forested area,” he added.
