Indian Army averts attack from Pakistani BAT; resorts to cross-fire
The Indian Army claims to have repulsed an attack of the Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT).
The BAT is said to be a mix of Pakistani regulars and militants.
The attack was averted near the Line of Control in the Tangdhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
The Army sources claimed that no casualty was reported in the incident that took place last night.
A BAT team attacked Indian troops near the LoC in the Tangdhar sector, prompting the Army to retaliate.
The exchange of fire continued for nearly an hour and the attack was effectively repulsed, an Army official said.>
