The armed forces have been attack on several occasions by the terrorists to topple the ceasefire

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said militants were trying to sabotage the Ramzan ceasefire, as the Army foiled another infiltration bid and killed three militants in north Kashmir’s Kupwara.

“Even as we see the ceasefire bringing great relief to the people of J&K, militants seem to be continuing their violent activities and desperately trying to sabotage the process. I only hope that they realise the futility of their actions soon,” Ms. Mufti said.

The statement comes a day after Lashkar-e-Taiba attacked an Army camp in Bandipora’s Hajin.

Meanwhile, Army’s Srinagar-based defence spokesperson Colonel Rajesh Kalia said the Army foiled an infiltration bid and killed three militants near the Line of Control (LoC) in Machil Sector in the morning.

In south Kashmir, a spontaneous shutdown was observed in Pulwama and Kulgam as the bodies of Mudasir Ahmad Bhat and Sheraz Ahmad Sheikh were buried in their villages.

The bodies were exhumed on Tuesday evening from Kupwara’s Tangdhar area. The two local militants were among five infiltrators killed on May 25 and 26 in an Army operation in Kupwara.

The authorities also snapped Internet services in Pulwama and Kulgam districts. Railway authorities also suspended train service.
