    An Army spokesman said in Srinagar that troops of 56 Rashtriya Rifles noticed some suspicious movement of about four persons along the LoC at around 3.00 am and challenged them.

    The ultras who were trying to sneak into the Valley from Pakistan occupied Kashmir, opened fire on the army positions including on Dingeri Post, which was retaliated. In the ensuing gunfight, a JCO identified as Arun Kumar was killed while a soldier Solanki Raju was injured.

    The terrorists fled in view of the stiff challenge posed by the army troops. The spokesman said, the ultras left behind two assault rifles and some war-like stores before crossing back into PoK territory.
