In an early morning encounter on Tuesday, one terrorist was gunned down in an encounter with security forces in Ganderbal district’s Gund in Jammu and Kashmir.
The operation was launched after specific input regarding the presence of terrorists in the area was received.
The Chinar Corps of the Indian Army tweeted that the operation was still in progress. “Terrorism Free Kashmir: One terrorist eliminated in an encounter near Gund, Ganderbal. Operation in progress,” its twitter handle said.
Earlier on Monday, the Kashmir Zone Police revealed that two Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) linked terrorists had been killed in Bandipora encounter which broke out on Sunday. While one terrorist was killed on Sunday itself, the second was neutralised on Monday. Arms and ammunition were also recovered from them.
