It seems there’s no respite for Kashmir from encounters. Just a few days after an army soldier and policeman injured in an encounter, another encounter broke out between the security forces and terrorists in Gahand area of South Kashmir’s Shopian on Saturday morning.
As per the sources, the encounter broke out when an exchange of fire took place when the army officials were on a cordon and search operation. Two terrorists have been killed in this encounter.
After getting informed about the militant presence, a joint operation was launched by Army’s 34RR and SOG. As the security forces tightened the cordon, the hiding militants fired triggering the encounter. The area has been cordoned off.
