According to a senior police official, a patrolling party of the 53 Rashtriya Rifles were attacked by the terrorists at round 6 pm in the village, triggering a fierce gunfight between the terrorists and the security forces which according to latest reports is still on.

“Even though, two of the terrorists have been killed, further reinforcements were deployed to the area to ensure that if any more terrorists were around, they might as well be also neutralised,” said the police official.

The police official said that one of the slain terrorists has been identified as Younis Maqbool Ganai, a resident of Patrigam area of Chadoora. The identity of the other is being ascertained, added the police official.

Later, while confirming the encounter, Army’s Srinagar-based spokesperson, Col Rajesh Kalia said that no security personnel or civilian was injured in the operation.
