Three Terrorist killed and a civilian injured in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday
Security forces launched a cordon-and-search operation in Tikken area of Pulwama district in the early hours of Wednesday following information about the presence of militants there.
The search operation turned into an encounter after militants opened fire on the security forces, who retaliated.
Two ultras were killed in the initial stages of the operation, the official said, adding that a civilian sustained injuries during the exchange of fire between the two sides.
The third militant put up some resistance before being neutralized by the security forces. The identity and group affiliation of the slain Terrorist was being ascertained.
A large number of militants killed and close to 200 terrorists have been killed in “Operation All Out” launched by Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir few months ago.
The recent encounters of Hizbul Mujahiden commanders Riyaz Naikoo and Dr Saifullah have left ISI in shock and majority of terror groups in Kashmir are now facing scarcity of terrorists.
Pakistan is making all efforts to infiltrate terrorists through the Line of Control and is also using drones and other means to supply arms to the terrorists present in Kashmir valley.
