In a clash in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla area, security forces managed to neutralise a terrorist.
Two terrorists were neutralised by security personnel in an encounter that occurred on Saturday morning in the Baramulla area of Jammu & Kashmir. Near the Line of Control in Uri, the anti-terrorist operation is continuing in progress.
In a tweet on social media, the Kashmir Police Zone stated: “Encounter has started between terrorists and Army & Baramulla Police in forward area of Uri, Hathlanga in Baramulla district.”
Later, it revealed that the operation had resulted in the deaths of two terrorists.
According to authorities, more information will be provided.
This occurs a day after two terrorist affiliates were apprehended in the Baramulla district as part of the discovery of a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror network, and weapons and ammunition were recovered from them. The two were identified by a police spokeswoman as Zaid Hassan Malla, of Mir Sahib Baramulla, and Mohammad Arif Channa, of Stadium Colony Baramulla.
According to the spokesperson, “they were engaged in the cross-border smuggling of arms and ammunition at the behest of Pakistan-based terror handlers and its further distribution to LeT terrorists for carrying out terror activities.”
An operation to eliminate terrorists who have established positions in the forested area on a high terrain is currently taking place in the Anantnag district. As the operation to drive out the ultras entered its fourth day on Saturday, security authorities used drones to determine the whereabouts of terrorists.
The two to three trapped terrorists will be neutralised, according to Additional Director General of Police (Kashmir) Vijay Kumar, who also stated that the operation was started in response to particular information. Additionally, he cautioned former military and police officers against promoting the ambush theory in the press.
“Retired police and military personnel should stay away from the ‘ambush hypothesis’. It is a particular input-based operation. All 2-3 trapped militants will be neutralised as part of the operation, he said.
Friday brought the death toll to four soldiers who died from their wounds. The death of the fourth member of the operation’s crew has not yet been officially confirmed by the army.
Aashish Dhonchak, a member of the same unit, DSP Humayun Muzamil Bhat, and Colonel Manpreet Singh, the commanding commander of the 19 Rashtriya Rifles, perished on Wednesday.
On Saturday, loud explosions were audible as the ongoing battle in Anantnag, Jammu and Kashmir, started its fourth day. In order to find terrorists, drone monitoring was also being deployed.
The data indicated that the forces were on the lookout for further terrorists in the region, despite the Valley’s police chief’s assurances that the terrorists would be destroyed.
The Kashmir Zone Police reported an encounter between terrorists and the Army and Baramulla Police in a post on X. “#Encounter has started between #terrorists and #Army & Baramulla Police in forward area of #Uri, Hathlanga in #Baramulla district,” it said.
In later updates, it was stated that two terrorists had been killed in the encounter and that a search operation was being conducted nearby.
The identities and group membership of the terrorists who were killed have not yet been determined, according to authorities.
The encounter takes place as part of a mission to eliminate terrorists who have established bases in the hilly forest area of the Anantnag district. On Friday, the gunfight’s third day began.
