The encounter in Anantnag district has entered its fourth day as the Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir Police continue their operation against terrorists. The terrorists are currently trapped in a cave at the top of a hill in the Kokernag area and the security forces have surrounded the terrorists. The drone footage showed that the terrorists were hiding in a natural cave in the mountains of Gadole forests in the Kokarnag area of Anantnag. Four security forces personnel — Colonel Singh, commanding officer of the 19 Rashtriya Rifles, Major Dhonchak, Deputy Superintendent of Police Humayun Bhat and a soldier -- were killed in the encounter with terrorists in the Gadole forests of Kokernag in Anantnag district on Wednesday morning.
According to highly placed sources, this operation will end soon, because the terrorists have now run out of ammunition and the terrorists are still escaping from the security forces only because they are hiding at a high place. It's worth noting that the area where the encounter is taking place has been completely surrounded, and all movement in the vicinity has been restricted.
