Two terrorists killed in Baramulla encounter: Report

Two terrorists were killed in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Wednesday, officials said. During the operation, one police officer and one army jawan sustained injuries.

The encounter began when a cordon and search operation was launched in the Watergam area following information about the presence of militants. As security forces advanced, the terrorists opened fire, leading to a gunfight. The injured police officer and army jawan were quickly taken to a hospital for treatment.


Inspector General of Police VK Birdi said, “Two bodies are seen at the encounter site. Both the terrorists have been killed. Their identity is yet to be ascertained.”

This incident comes just a day before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s planned visit to Srinagar. Over the past week, PM Modi chaired a review meeting on the terrorist conflict in J&K, following multiple encounters between security forces and terrorists in recent months. Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval informed the Prime Minister about the measures being taken to combat terrorist activities in the region.
