Poonch (Jammu and Kashmir), June 22: A third attempt of armed intrusion by Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) in Poonch this year was foiled on Thursday at 2 p.m. "In the firefight, our two jawans have been martyred", the Indian Army said in a statement, according to NDTV, adding that the exchange of fire is still on.
Pakistan's Border Action Teams (BAT) comprise heavily armed terrorists and are supported by the country's army.
While the firefight was going on, the Pakistani posts resorted to heavy firing. Army sources said the attackers lay in wait for a long time for the patrol team while Pakistani troops tried divert attention by firing rockets and mortars on forward posts. In retaliatory action undertaken by the Indian security forces, two BAT militants were also killed.
In February 2000, seven months after the Kargil War, a Pakistani BAT killed seven Indian soldiers in Nowshera in Rajouri district.
