The Kashmir Zone Police shared a statement on ‘X’ (formerly Twitter), confirming the operation and stating, “Encounter has started in Larrow-Parigam area of Pulwama. Police & Security Forces are on the job. Further details shall follow.”
Earlier this month, security forces were involved in a similar operation in the Bariyama area of Rajouri district, where they successfully neutralized another terrorist. The ongoing efforts of the security forces underscore their commitment to maintaining peace and security in the region.
As the security forces engaged in the encounter in the Larrow-Parigam area of Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir, the local police issued a safety advisory for residents in the vicinity. According to a report by PTI, residents were advised to maintain a safe distance of at least 2 kilometers from the encounter site to ensure their safety.

The Additional Director General of Police revealed that the eliminated terrorist is suspected to be of Pakistani origin. During the operation, security forces managed to recover a bag in possession of the suspect, which contained an assortment of arms and ammunition. The confiscated items included one AK47 rifle, two pistols, magazines, ammunition, cash, and other materials.
The successful encounter in Pulwama comes after a previous operation carried out in the Gundha-Khawas village of the Budhal area. During a cordon-and-search operation launched by the police and the army, an unidentified terrorist was killed in an exchange of fire. The body of the slain terrorist was subsequently retrieved from the scene.
These recent operations underscore the unwavering dedication of security forces in their mission to counter the threat of terrorism and maintain the safety and security of the region.
