Pakistan attempted once again to send in its Border Action Team across the Line of Control on Thursday but the major attack was foiled in the Poonch sector.

The Border Action Team (BAT), which generally comprises special forces of the Pakistan Army and some terrorists, carried out the attack at around 2 pm with the aid of cover fire by the Pakistani troops from their posts, he said. Today's incident is not the first, but the third this year, after which the government needs to take an action.

"BAT team from Pakistan had crossed the Line of Control and came 600 meters into the Indian side".

"While the firefight was going on, Pakistani posts engaged our posts by heavy firing".

The sources had earlier also said that Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged small, automatics and mortar fire in Poonch district of the de facto border.

In the firefight, two Indian soldiers were killed.
