J&K: 2 Terrorists neutralized in encounter with security forces in Doda; Area cordoned off

Doda: In a major development, two terrorists were neutralised during an encounter with security forces in a forest area in Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district on Wednesday.

The exchange of fire had begun in Bajaad village in the Gandoh area around 9.50 am amid an intensified search and cordon operation by the police along with the Army and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) following twin terrorist attacks in the hilly district on June 11 and 12, officials told news agency PTI.

On June 11, six security personnel were injured when terrorists attacked a joint check post at Chattargalla, while a policeman was injured in a gunfight with terrorists at Kota top in the Gandoh area the next day.

Following the twin attacks, security forces intensified their anti-terrorist operations and announced a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh each for four Pakistani terrorists believed to have infiltrated and operated in the district.

The police, assisted by security forces, launched an operation in the village of Sinoo panchayat but came under heavy fire from the hiding terrorists, the official said.

The exchange of fire was still going on when the last reports were received, they added.
