SRINAGAR: Three Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists, two of them from Pakistan, were gunned down by security forces in an anti-terror operation at Chandgam in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Wednesday, IGP (Kashmir Zone) Vijay Kumar said.
This was the second anti-terror operation against Jaish in south Kashmir within 24 hours, resulting in two local terrorists from the outfit being killed during a gunfight with security forces in Kulgam.
IGP Kumar identified the local terrorist killed in Wednesday’s encounter as Mir Owais Amin from Pulwama. The names of the Pakistani duo weren’t immediately known. Two M-4 carbines and an AK-series rifle were among the arms, ammunition and other incriminating material recovered from the site of the firefight, he said.
Early Wednesday, a joint team of the Army, police and CRPF had launched the cordon-and-search operation in Chandgam, based on intelligence inputs about the presence of terrorists there, said an official.
As the security forces neared the suspected terrorist hideout, holed-up terrorists rained bullets on the search party, triggering an encounter in which the Jaish trio was killed, the official added.
The police identified the two Jaish terrorists killed in Tuesday’s Kulgam encounter as Amir Wani from Shopian’s Alamgunj and Sameer Khan from Tiken in Pulwama.
