Jammu On Terror Radar? 4 Encounters In Last 3 Days

(MENAFN- Kashmir Observer) Jammu- A policeman was injured as a fresh encounter has broken out between security forces and terrorists in the Gandoh area of Jammu and Kashmir's Doda, said the J&K Police on Wednesday. The firing was reported from the Kota top area of Bhalesa around 7.41 pm to which security forces retaliated, they said.

A top police officer said that exchange of fire between terrorists and a joint team of forces started after a search operation on specific inputs about the presence of terrorists. As the joint team of forces approached towards the suspected spot, the hiding terrorists fired upon the forces, triggering off a gunfight, the officer said.


An intermittent exchange of fire between the two sides was going on when last reports were received. Reinforcements were rushed to the area to strengthen the cordon, they added.

This comes amid the region witnessing a surge in violence with three significant attacks: the Reasi terror attack, the Kathua terror attack, and the Doda
terror attack. The series of attacks began on June 9, when terrorists attacked a bus in Reasi, causing it to plunge into a gorge.

This tragic incident resulted in the deaths of at least 9 pilgrims and left 42 others injured. In the days following, villagers in the Hiranagar area of Kathua reported hearing gunshots on Tuesday.
