In a latest development, an encounter has erupted between terrorists and security forces in Pulwama district of Kashmir. According to initial reports, one terrorist has been neutralized, but efforts to retrieve the body are still ongoing.

The exchange of gunfire occurred in the Arshipora area of Pulwama during a cordon and search operation initiated by security forces following intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists in the vicinity.

Senior police officials have confirmed that the terrorists opened fire on the search party, prompting the security forces to retaliate. While one terrorist is believed to have been shot down, his body remains unsecured at the time of reporting. Additionally, another terrorist is suspected to be trapped in the area.

The situation remains fluid as gunfire continues between the security forces and the trapped terrorists. Further updates are awaited as the encounter unfolds in Pulwama.

It is worth mentioning that just a couple of days ago, army troops opened fire and launched a subsequent search operation in Rajouri after they noticed suspicious movement of a group of people in the darkness. These incidents highlight growing challenges of Pak instigated instability in the region. Just a week ago, Indian security forces foiled an infiltration attempt in Iri killing two terrorists. Notably, elections are to be conducted for UT assembly by October this year and so Pakistan is trying to destabilise the valley so that it can hamper the peaceful environment that has been created in J&K after the revocation of Article 370.
