In an extensive anti-terror operation in Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir Indian security forces successfully neutralized five terrorists within the cordoned area. The operation, situated in the Samno area of Nehama village, encountered a resurgence of gunfire early Friday after a temporary lull overnight.
Initiated on Thursday, the meticulously planned cordon-and-search operation by security forces was in response to credible intelligence pointing to the presence of suspicious individuals in the vicinity.
What initially began as a routine search operation swiftly escalated into an intense exchange of fire between the terrorists and security personnel, leading to a defensive response from the forces.
Some reports have earlier confirmed that the terrorists were linked to Lashkar-e-Toiba.
The Kashmir Zone Police tweeted the successful neutralization of the terrorists, indicating a substantial achievement in the ongoing operation. Additionally, incriminating materials have been recovered from the encounter site.
Indian security forces have been vigilantly following the leads and taking every measure possible to eliminate the terrorists and their terror revival plan in the region. The recent encounter marks their dedication for the same.
