J&K Encounter: Two Al-Badr Terrorists Surrounded By Security Forces In Srinagar
In the ongoing operation, the security forces launched an aggressive operation against the two terrorists who had visited a hostel in Srinagar’s HMT area to radicalize the young residents
In an ongoing encounter in Srinagar’s HMT area in Jammu and Kashmir, the security forces have reportedly surrounded two terrorists suspected to be aligned with the Al-Badr outfit. Intelligence agencies received information at around 4 pm yesterday about the presence of the infiltrators in a hostel near the Noora Hospital. According to sources, the two militants were in the building to radicalize and convince the other young boys residing there to join the Pakistani extremist group.
Officials of the joint operation that comprised members of the Central Reserve Police Force, the local J&K police and the Indian Army made several announcements encouraging the two men to surrender. While one man is a Pakistani intruder, the other is believed to be a local youth. The Kashmiri local turned militant came out in front of the authorities but was shot by his companion who disallowed him to surrender.
Up till four hours of the encounter, more than 1,000 gunshots were exchanged between the two sides after the perpetrators opened fire first. The structure where they are currently hiding has been cordoned off and an aggressive pinpoint operation has been launched by the forces.
A fortnight back, two Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists were captured by the police in J&K after the former laid their weapons down to avoid an encounter.
