According to reports, the Pakistani soldiers tried to infiltrate the Indian side at approximately 2:30 am on 6 August. The gunfight broke out about 500 m from the border.

Intruders on own side of LOC engaged(500 m inside). Security sources have said that the strength of the group of intruders was 5-6.

During the exchange of fire, one soldier was injured. The injured jawan has been evacuated and is now stable.

Indian army officials said that there has been a desperate attempt to revive terrorism and push terrorists from the Jaish-e-Mohammed and other terrorist groups in Kashmir.
