Srinagar: At least five guerrillas were killed when they tried to sneak into the Indian side of the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, an official said on Saturday. A soldier too was killed in the gun-battle.

The incident took place in the Uri sector of the Baramulla district when Indian troops “noticed suspicious movement on our side of the LoC yesterday (Friday)”. Indian-soldier-Nationalturk-17

“After being challenged, a group of heavily armed terrorists fired at the troops, triggering a gunfight in which one terrorist was killed yesterday (Friday) and a soldier sustained minor injuries,” a senior army official told IANS.

“Late last evening, four more terrorists were killed, while we also lost one of our soldiers,” the official said.

The militants were engaged in an infiltration bid, the official added.

The official said recovering the bodies of the guerrillas would take time because of the difficult terrain.

Some of the guerrillas might have fled back after their infiltration attempt was foiled, the official added. (IANS)

In criminal matters involving NRIs, the LoC could be issued by the INA in cognizable offences, when the overseas husband is deliberately evading arrest or not appearing in the trial court despite non-bailable warrants and other coercive measures or if there is a likelihood that he will leave the country to evade trial or arrest.

Last month, the Ministry had issued five LoCs after examining the complaints received regarding NRI matrimonial disputes. (IANS)
