Nagrota encounter: India summons Charge d’Affaires of Pakistan High Commission

India has summoned the Charge d’Affaires of the Pakistan High Commission to raise concerns over Thursday’s encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Nagrota in which four suspected terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammed were killed.

A strong protest was demonstrated by the Foreign Ministry that demanded Pakistan to stop supporting terrorist groups and dismantle the terrorist infrastructure.


An Indian sourced said New Delhi is strongly demanding that Islamabad oblige its international and bilateral commitments by not allowing terrorism activity in their controlled territory.

The four suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed in a three-hour encounter with security forces on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway near Nagrota early morning on Thursday. The terrorists were hiding in a truck, as per the sources.

Two policemen were injured but the driver managed to escape. The police said that the terrorists were ‘planning a big attack’ and they were heading towards the Kashmir valley where local elections are due this month.

On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, and others.

Prime Minister also tweeted, “Our security forces have once again displayed utmost bravery and professionalism. Thanks to their alertness, they have defeated a nefarious plot to target grassroots level democratic exercises in Jammu and Kashmir.”
