Yesterday, the Indian Army foiled an infiltration bid by Pakistan near Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district.

"The Pakistani troops fired mortars and also used light weapons to provide firing cover to the infiltrators", they alleged.

Earlier, the Foreign Office spokesman said that Pakistan had handed over a list of 546 Indian prisoners to the High Commission of India.

The Indian Army effectively and strongly retaliated to unprovoked Pakistan aggression, causing heavy damage to the enemy posts. "It is nothing but an attempt to push in as many terrorists as possible befor the winter sets in", said an official. "The armed intruders came near our Army posts", a Defence source said.

On September 23, Pakistan troops targeted BoPs in Arnia, RS Pura and Ramgarh and Poonch sectors along the IB and LoC in Jammu, Samba and Poonch districts resulting in injuries to seven persons.

"The border dwellers, in spite of the hardships they face, have asked us to take strong action against cross-border shelling".

The injured were identified as Shamim Akhter, a 55-year-old woman from Dharati, and Raza Ahmed, a 28-year-old man from Basooni - both villages in Balakote sector in Poonch, according to the reports.
