8Jammu: Four dreaded Pakistan-trained terrorists were killed and another apprehended by the security forces during an encounter in the Naugam sector near the Line of Control (LoC) in Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.
Four terrorists have been killed while one has been apprehended alive during an operation in Naugam sector,” an army official said.
He said all the militants were foreign nationals.
The operation was in progress when reports were last received from the encounter site.
