Four terrorists, part of a group of six killed in recent encounters in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kulgam district, were discovered to have been living in a concealed bunker inside a cupboard in a civilian home. The hideout was located in the Chinigam Frisal area.

A video circulating on social media shows security personnel dismantling a cupboard to reveal the hidden bunker. Authorities are investigating potential local involvement in sheltering the militants.

All six terrorists eliminated in the twin operations were reportedly affiliated with Hizbul Mujahideen, including a local commander of the Pakistan-linked group. The encounters, which began on July 6, also resulted in the deaths of two Indian Army soldiers, one of whom was an elite para commando.

Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police RR Swain called the operation a major achievement in improving the region’s security. He said, “This is an indication that the security architecture and involvement of people is leading to the flow of human intelligence, and this fight against terror will be taken to its logical conclusion.”

The encounters occurred in two villages of Kulgam district. Two terrorists were killed in Modergam, while four bodies were recovered from the Chinigam site. The terrorists killed in Chinigam have been identified as Yawar Bashir Dar, Zahid Ahmad Dar, Tawheed Ahmad Rather, and Shakeel Ahmad Wani.

These operations come amid the ongoing Amarnath Yatra in South Kashmir, highlighting the continued security challenges in the region. Authorities remain vigilant in their efforts to combat terrorism and maintain public safety.
