A 19-year-old Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist was captured and another was killed last evening in a huge counter-insurgency operation to stop terrorists trying to cross over at Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri along the Line of Control, the army said today. According to the report, four soldiers sustained bullet injuries during the exchange of fire between the Army and the terrorists.

Yesterday’s capture was a part of the biggest counter-insurgency operation launched by India at the LoC since the ceasefire with Pakistan in February.  The sources said the captured terrorist was part of a recent infiltration bid that was going on since 18 September in Uri.

The infiltration attempt was made in the area of Salamabad Nala, the same area used by terrorists who attacked the army base in Uri in 2016, killing 19 soldiers. Days after the attack, India launched surgical strikes targeting terror camps across the Line of Control.
