The video was released today by Indian news agency ANI, claiming to be of Pakistani terrorists in the hilly terrain of the Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir on 30 July.
The attempt was said to have been foiled by the Indian Army after suspicious movement was detected in the region. Indian troops retaliated by firing, forcing the alleged infiltrators to retreat.

India’s National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval, claimed on 7 September that the Pakistan Army is pushing terrorists into Kashmir to foment trouble.
"We will not allow people to become victims of Pakistan's machinations and its bullets sent across the border. We will do everything in our power to protect the people," he said.
Earlier, a video was released by the Indian Army alleged to be of an infiltration attempt by the Pakistan Army Border Action Team (BAT) along the LoC in the state’s Kupwara district.
Tensions between the two nuclear-armed nations escalated after India carried out an aerial strike in Balakot, an area inside Pakistan, to destroy alleged terrorist facilities operated by Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) on 26 February.
Tension resurfaced in the first week of the August after the Indian parliament scrapped Jammu and Kashmir's seven-decades-old special quasi-autonomous status.
Reacting to India's move on Kashmir, Islamabad downgraded diplomatic ties with New Delhi and expelled the Indian high commissioner. Pakistan also suspended trade and communications with India and mounted a diplomatic offensive.
