Dead Pakistani soldiers in Kargil war were buried by Army with Islamic rituals at Point 4875 

The Army on Saturday said they foiled a Border Action Team (BAT) attack in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district, killing at least five to seven Pakistani intruders.

The BAT attempt was made in forward posts in Keran sector.

“A BAT attempt was made on one of the forward posts in Keran sector and foiled by alert troops resulting in neutralising of 5 to 7 Pakistani regulars/terrorists,” Srinagar-based defence spokesman Col Rajesh Kalia said.

Defence sources said four bodies may possibly be of Pakistan's SSG commandos.

Sources said at least five bodies of Pakistani intruders are on the Indian side and due to continuous firing, the bodies are not being retrieved.

On Friday, Chinar Corps Commander Lt General KJS Dhillon had said according to available intelligence reports, all the launchpads in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir are full and infiltrators attempting to enter in Kashmir.

Col Kalia said in the last 36 hours there have been number of attempts by Pakistan to disturb peace in Valley and target Aamarnath pilgrims.

“In the Valley, four hardcore Jaish terrorists were neutralised... Forces also recovered cache of sniper rifle, IED and mine with Pak markings. This clearly indicates the complicity of Pak in terror activities. Security forces will continue to respond to all nefarious activities along LoC and hinterland,” the spokesman said.

Four Jaish militants were killed in two gunfights since Friday.
