During the search operation, the civilians were evacuated to safer places and as the presence of terrorists got ascertained they were given an opportunity to surrender, however they fired indiscriminately upon the joint search party, which was retaliated leading to an encounter.

Due to darkness, the operation was suspended however the cordon remained intact throughout the night.

In the initial exchange of fire two Army jawans received gunshot injuries and were evacuated to hospital, however one among the injured succumbed and attained martyrdom,” the police said.

Arms, ammunition and other incriminating materials have been recovered from the site of the encounter.

“Parents of Amir, a terror associate were called to appeal to surrender but failed. All 5 LeT terrorists including a Pakistani terrorist Rehan were killed. Arms, ammunition & some documents recovered. They were planning an attack at Srinagar-Pulwama National Highway,” IGP Kashmir Vijaya Kumar said.
