J&K: Terrorist killed in encounter in Shopian, operation underway

A terrorist has been killed in an encounter between security forces and terrorists at Rakhama area of Shopian, said Jammu and Kashmir police on Friday.

"One unidentified terrorist killed. Operation in progress. Police and Security Forces are on the job. Further details shall follow," tweeted Kashmir Zone Police.

Security forces launched a cordon and search operation at Rakhama village in the district following information about the presence of militants in the area, a police spokesman said.

As the security forces zeroed in on the spot where terrorists were hiding they came under a heavy volume of fire that triggered the encounter. The search operation turned into an encounter after terrorists opened fire towards the security forces drawing retaliation.

 

The encounter broke in the wee hours of Friday. The operation is still underway.
