J&K: Two army troops, including a Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) and six terrorists, were killed in separate fire engagements in Jammu’s Rajouri and Kashmir’s Pulwama and Kulgam, amid increased search and destroy operations. During a counter-infiltration process in Rajouri, Naib Subedar Sreejith M and Sepoy Maruprolu Jaswanth Reddy were murdered in a gunbattle in Daddal hamlet in the Sunderbani sector, according to Indian Express, citing sources.
According to authorities, two “foreign terrorists” from Pakistan were killed in the encounter, while another was injured. Four additional terrorists were killed in subsequent meetings during a search operation in Kashmir, according to authorities. An incident occurred after security personnel encountered a group of terrorists who had recently entered from over the border in Rajouri. Following the drone assault on an Indian Air Force installation in Jammu on June 27, the Army has been conducting intensive search operations in the region since June 29.
He said, “When confronted, the terrorists opened fire and threw hand grenades.” The military reacted, resulting in a violent battle in which two foreign terrorists from Pakistan were killed,” according to reports. On Wednesday, after getting information regarding the presence of terrorists, a joint team of J&K Police, Army, and CRPF conducted a “cordon and searched” operation in Pulwama’s Puchal hamlet. According to officials, the militants attempted to breach the perimeter by throwing grenades and opening fire, resulting in a shootout in which two of them were killed.
The deceased terrorists, both Pulwama district locals, were named by police as Kifayat Ramzan and Inayat Ahmad Dar and were reported to be members of the Al Badr group. According to authorities, another gunfight occurred a few hours later in Kulgam, when a joint team of police, Army, and CRPF had set up checkpoints at Zadora hamlet in Qazigund based on information of terrorist activities.
J&K police claimed in a statement that “when a suspicious car was signaled to halt,” two militants “got out of the vehicle and began shooting indiscriminately.” However, the alert party reacted successfully, resulting in the immediate death of two terrorists,” according to the report.
