J&K: 3 terrorists killed, an army jawan martyred in an encounter in Pulwama

DD News
In Jammu & Kashmir, three militants were killed in an encounter with a joint team of security forces in Hendew area of South Kashmir’s Shopian district early this evening. An army man was also injured in the initial phase of the gunfight.

A gunfight broke out between militants and security forces after a joint team of Army and J&K police launched a cordon and search operation late afternoon near the orchards in Hendew village on the basis of credible inputs about the presence of some militants in the area.

As the joint team of forces approached the suspected place, the hiding militants fired upon forces triggering an encounter. In the ensuing encounter, three militants were killed.

Security sources identified the slain as Hizbul Mujahideen cadres. The operation concluded in the area. Another gunfight broke out between militants and forces in Kandi forests of north Kashmir’s Kupwara district. 

Till now, the cordon and search operation was going on in the mountainous areas of Portel Nad and Razdan Nad which are upper reaches of Kandi connecting Lolab forests. There was no report of any fatal or non fatal casualties on either side so far.
