After gunfire rang out from the area today morning, the Indian Army launched a massive operation in the Tangdhar sector of J&K to find the suspected militants. While some television reports suggest that the militants attacked an Indian Army post, no official confirmation has come in as yet.
The incident took place in the same sector where a colonel made the supreme sacrifice about a week ago.
Last year, a total of 70 attempts were made by terrorists to infiltrate the border. A total of 65 terrorists are reported to have sneaked in while about twice as many were pushed back.
