Two terrorists killed in J&K’s Pulwama, encounter still on

Srinagar: Two terrorists were killed in an ongoing fierce encounter with security forces in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district Monday.

Police have identified one of the dead terrorists as Kifayat

According to a police official, acting on specific information that a few terrorists were hiding in a house in Bahmnoo village, the security forces comprising the Army, CRPF and the SOG of the state police launched a joint operation to nab or neutralise the hiding terrorists.

The police official said that as the security cordon closed in, the hiding terrorists resorted to heavy firing and in the ensuing gun-battle, two the terrorists were killed. “Two to three terrorists are reportedly present at the same place and the encounter is on,” said the police official.

Contrary to the police information, sources said that two to three terrorists managed to escape from the encounter site as locals came out in their support and started pelting stones at the security forces. A civilian was critically wounded in the cross fire between the terrorists and the security forces, said sources.

Police have identified one of the dead terrorists as Kifayat.

Besides being engaged with the encounter with the holed up terrorists, the security forces have launched a search operation in the area to nab or neutralise any of their aides who managed to escape for the site of encounter, said an official.

The ongoing operation was started barely 10 hours after locals helped a group of terrorists escape a cordon and search operation in the Malangpora village of Pulwama on Sunday evening.

Meanwhile, in Anantnag town of south Kashmir today, a policeman was shot at and injured by terrorists, police said.

Injured police constable Ghulam Hassan was deployed on security duty in Anantnag near a bus stand when terrorists fired at him.
