In a massive response to the killings of innocents civilians and troops in J&K, the J&K police battled back the terrorists in every way possible on Tuesday, killing two of them.
Police in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district tweeted Tuesday that two unidentified terrorists had been killed in an ongoing anti-terror operation.
Incriminating materials, including arms and ammunition, were recovered from the terrorists. Search going on. Further details shall follow,” police said.
This is the sixth anti-terror operation in J&K in the last 36 hours, and it comes as security forces fight back against recent targeted killings of civilians, five of whom were slain in less than 48 hours last week.
Three terrorists were shot dead Monday night in Shopian, according to Kashmir Police, after another anti-terror operation. At least one of them was implicated in the death of a civilian last week.
All three were given the opportunity to surrender, according to police, but they declined.
Mukhtar Shah, a resident of Ganderbal, has been linked to the murder of Virendra Paswan, a Bihar native who worked as a street food hawker in Srinagar.
Another terrorist, Imtiyaz Ahmad Dar, was shot and killed in Bandipore’s Hajin neighbourhood yesterday, and four of his associates were apprehended, according to police.
Dar is suspected of gunning down Mohammad Shafi Lone, a cab driver from Bandipore who was one of three civilians killed last Tuesday, including Virendra Paswan.
