Indian Army foils attack and kills 2 Pakistani Border Action Team Soldiers

The Indian Army said its troops foiled an attack by Pakistan’s Border Action Team (BAT) on a patrol party along the Line of Control in Uri sector of Kashmir on Friday, killing two militants.

“Alert troops foiled a BAT attack on our patrol party in Uri sector today. Two BAT terrorists were killed in the operation and the attack was effectively repulsed,” an army official said in Srinagar.

According to police sources, the bodies of the two slain militants were lying in “no man’s land” along the LoC.

Notorious for gruesome attacks across the de facto border between India and Pakistan, the Border Action Team had beheaded two Indian soldiers in May. The Pakistan army’s elite special services group forms the core of BAT. Its primary task is to dominate the LoC by carrying out disruptive actions in the form of surreptitious raids.
