Rajouri:  Two heavily armed Pakistani intruders and three soldiers were killed Sunday in a gunfight after the Army foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, a defence spokesman said.

Another security personnel was injured during the encounter, which took place in the Sunderbani sector.  

The security forces also recovered two AK-47 rifles from the slain Pakistani intruders who are believed to be members of a Border Action Team (BAT) comprising Pakistan Army jawans and trained militants, an army officer said on condition of anonymity. 

"At about 1.45 pm, Indian Army in Sunderbani sector had a fierce encounter with heavily armed Pakistani intruders very close to the LoC. The patrol (team) killed two intruders and recovered war-like stores including two AK-47 rifles," the spokesman said.

Earlier today, an encounter also broke out between terrorists and security forces in South Kashmir's Kulgam district in which three terrorists were gunned down.
